I would like to play the clarinet too! : A survey study about future music teachers´ chioce of instrument (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka vilka faktorer som var viktigast i valet av instrument för musiklärarstudenter. Studien letar också efter samband mellan faktorer och olika instrumentval. Tidigare forskning lyfter fram en mängd olika faktorer som spelar roll vid valet av musikinstrument. Instrumentets klang och föräldrars stöd utmärker sig som viktigast. Forskningen visar också att det finns tydliga könsskillnader i valet av instrument. Studiens syfte undersöks genom en enkät. Enkäten kartlägger bakgrundsfaktorer som kön, ålder, föräldrars uppmuntran, musicerande i omgivningen, musiklyssning och socioekonomisk status i samband med instrumentvalet. Resultatet bekräftar delvis tidigare forskning kring viktiga faktorer i instrumentvalet. Testerna av sambanden mellan faktorerna var i många fall inte signifikativa, vilket gör att flera samband inte kan säkerställas. Familj, ålder vid instrumentvalet och kön var bakgrundsfaktorer som visade sig vara påverkande i valet. Avslutningsvis diskuteras tidigare forskning i förhållande till resultatet. Här förs en diskussion kring de mönster som resultatet visat och komplexiteten av att kartlägga vilka faktorer som är påverkande i valet av instrument.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate which factors are the most important in the choice of instrument for future music teachers. The study also investigates the interconnections between different factors and their influence on choice of instrument. Previous research highlights a wide range of factors that play a role in the selection of musical instruments, among which the sound of the instrument and parental support are considered to be the most significant. The research also shows that there are clear gender differences as regards the choice of instrument. The research questions considered is examined through a survey. Background factors such as gender, age, parental encouragement, exposure to music making, music listening and socioeconomic status are considered in relation to the instrument selection. The results partly confirm previous research on which are the key factors in the choice of instrument. The interconnection between the factors and choices were in many cases not statistically significant, which means that such conclusions cannot be drawn. The background factors found to be most significant were family, age at which the choice was made and gender. In the discussion section, previous research is compared and contrasted in relation to these results. A discussion on trends in the results and the difficulty in establishing which factors influence the choice of instruments concludes the study.
