Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka musikteorilärares syn på musikteori som undervisningsämne. Detta har undersökts med fokusgrupper som metod där musikteorilärare i två fokusgrupper samtalar kring sin syn på musikteori som undervisningsämne. Studiens teoretiska ram består av diskursanalys som teori och metod. De transkriberade intervjuerna har analyserats och bearbetats med hjälp av diskursanalys som analysmetod för att därigenom synliggöra olika diskurser om synsätt. Resultatet visar på fyra större diskurser kring lärares syn på musikteori: musikteori som integrerat ämne, musikteori som verktyg för olika musikaliska ändamål, musikteori som gemensamt språk och musikteori som olika aspekter av kunskap.Det framgår även flera mindre diskurser inom flera av de stora diskurserna. Resultatet visar att musikteori bör vara integrerat med andra ämnen och att musikteoretisk kunskap bör ses som praktisk och personlighetsbaserad kunskap. Resultatet visar också att musikteori är ett användbart verktyg för musicerande, att skapa musik, konstnärlighet och för att uppnå musikalisk medvetenhet. I diskussionen lyfts de fyra större diskurserna ifrån resultatet fram, och de diskuteras i relation till tidigare forskning och litteratur.  

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate music theory teachers approach to music theory as a teaching subject. This has been investigated with focus groups as a method in which music teachers in two groups are talking about their approach to music theory as a teaching subject. The theoretical framework for this study consists of discourse analysis as theory and method. The transcribed interviews have been analysed and processed using discourse analysis as an analysis method to make different discourses visible. The results show four major discourses about teachers approaches to music theory. There are also several minor discourses in several of the major discourses. The results show that music theory should be integrated with other music subjects where theoretical knowledge should be practical and personality based knowledge. The results also show that music theory is a useful tool for many different purposes. The discussion shows four major discourses: Music theory as an interactive subject, music theory as a tool for various purposes, music theory as common language and music theory as different forms of knowledge which is related to earlier studies.
