Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how high school students, whose main instrument is singing, experience the relationship between voice and identity. Their perspective as to how singing lessons affect the development of their self-esteem and identity are investigated as well as what they believe characterizes developmental voice instruction. Using qualitative interviews with six interviewees from two different schools, the following results were found: The majority of the students believe that the voice can be both an instrument and a part of the personality or the identity. However, it is a more personal or more physical instrument than other instruments. For some students, the development of their voice and musicality affects other parts of their life, such as choice of education or how confident they are. Song lessons that help them develop musically and personally are characterized by, among other things, the constructive criticism they receive and challenging tasks, such as repertoire, that the students would not have chosen for themselves. Many students also express a strong emotional connection to the music and to the singing in their lives – their lives would be different, and they would not feel as good, if they lost their ability to sing.
