I wanna study music! : An interview-based study of music teachers’ perception of music education in a folk high school preparing students for music college. (English)
Abstract [sv]

I föreliggande studie presenteras vad instrumentallärare på folkhögskolor anser vara viktigt att arbeta med i sin undervisning med tanke på elevers kommande antagningsprov till musikhögskolor. För att belysa studiens forskningsområde läggs tidigare forskning fram samt annan relevant litteratur kring sociala och musikaliska aspekter på folkhögskolan och i instrumentalundervisning. Även antagningskraven för musikhögskolan inom jazzgenren presenteras. Studiens övergripande perspektiv är pragmatismen och dess metodologiska utgångspunkt är kvalitativ. En kvalitativ intervju har gjorts med fyra respondenter bestående av olika instrumentallärare inom jazzgenren på folkhögskolan. Resultatet visar instrumentallärares bild av individualisering som ett centralt verktyg i deras undervisning samt deras olika syn på aspekter som påverkar elevers utveckling, exempelvis övning, motivation och socialt samspel. Respondenterna lyfter även andra relevanta kunskaper och förmågor inför sökningen till musikhögskolan, vilka i korthet är samspel, improvisation och andra musikaliska faktorer. Studien visar att individualiseringsaspekten är en styrka på folkhögskolan. Övning, målsättning och motivation visar sig höra samman med elevers utveckling och läraren kan inta olika roller för att bidra till sina elevers motivation. Det sociala samspelet i folkhögskolans miljö verkar också vara en påverkande faktor. Avslutningsvis diskuteras bland annat musikhögskolornas sökningsinformation på hemsidorna samt huruvida folkhögskollärarnas val av undervisningsinnehåll är relaterat till lärarens egen musikaliska utbildning. 

Abstract [en]

This study is about what instrumental teachers on folk high schools consider to be important aspects in their lessons in order to prepare their students for the admission tests on music colleges. In order to elaborate on the subject and aims of this study, background information such as relevant literature and a discussion of the social and musical aspects of studying in folk high schools and instrumental music education, is presented. A summary of the entry requirements for swedish music colleges specialising in jazz is also included. The study takes a pragmatic scientific approach and is qualitative in its methodology. As such, qualitative interviews were done with four music teachers at a folk high school specialising in jazz. The results of the research show that the teachers use individualisation as a central tool in their music lessons and that their different approaches have a significant impact on the students´ development in terms of practice, motivation, and social relations. The teachers go so far as to include interplay, improvisation and other musical factors in their lessons. The study shows that individualisation is a strength of the folk high school system. Musical exercises, aimed at setting goals and increasing motivation have an important impact on students musical development. In addition, music teachers take on various different roles to contribute to their students development. The social interplay in the environment of the folk high school is another factor that seems to contribute positively to students’ development. This study concludes with a discussion of the information needed to apply to music colleges and how the choice of content of different teachers at the folk high school is related to their own musical education.
