Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att undersöka instrumentlärares syn på och arbete med improvisation i den enskilda instrumentundervisningen inom gymnasieskolan och kulturskolan. Studiens teoretiska ramverk utgörs av diskurspsykologi. För att undersöka detta har fokusgrupper använts som datainsamlingsmetod där lärare från gymnasiet och kulturskolan har samtalat om sina synsätt på improvisation. Samtalen spelades in med både ljud och bild för att sedan transkriberas och analyseras med diskursanalys för att urskilja diverse diskurser, i föreliggande studie också kallat tolkningsrepertoarer. I resultatet framträder vissa motstridiga tolkningsrepertoarer när lärarna beskriver sina synsätt på improvisation, såsom Improvisation som något frigörande och Improvisation som något hämmande. Resultatet visar att dessa motstridiga tolkningsrepertoarer kan ges uttryck för hos en och samma lärare. Samtliga lärare i studien är dock överens om att improvisation inte är bundet till en specifik genre, även om de medger att det har mer fokus i vissa kontexter. Vidare framträder vilka effekter och funktioner olika tolkningsrepertoarer har på lärarnas arbete med improvisation. Härmningsövningar är ett återkommande sätt att undervisa i improvisation utan någon särskild genrekontext som lärarna beskriver. I diskussionen lyfts resultatets mest framträdande tolkningsrepertoarer fram för att diskuteras i relation till det teoretiska perspektivet samt tidigare presenterad litteratur och forskning inom ämnet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine instrument teachers’ views on and work with improvisation in the individual instrumental education in upper secondary school and Swedish Community School of Music. The theoretical framework of the study is discourse psychology. To examine this, focus groups were used as method for data collection in which teachers from upper secondary school and music school talked about their views on improvisation. The conversations were recorded with both audio and image to later be transcribed and analyzed with discourse analysis to distinguish various discourses, in this study also referred to as interpretative repertoires. The result shows certain conflicting interpretative repertoires as the teachers describe their views on improvisation, such as Improvisation as something liberating and Improvisation as something inhibitory. The result shows that these conflicting interpretative repertoires can be spoken for by the same teacher. However, all the teachers in the study agrees that improvisation isn’t bound to a specific genre, although they admit that it is more focused on in certain contexts. Moreover, the effects and functions that different interpretative repertoires have on teachers’ work also appear. Mimicry exercises are a recurring way to teach improvisation without a specific context of genre, as described by the teachers. In the discussion the most prominent interpretative repertoires from the result are discussed in relation to the theoretical framework as well as previously presented literature and research within the subject matter.
