Musician or music teacher? Or maybe both? : A survey on music education majors motivations and visions for their future career in music (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det är idag en brist på musiklärare i Sveriges grundskolor. Samtidigt pekar tidigare studier på att det finns hos musiklärarstudenter en social kod varinom musikeryrket har högre status till skillnad från musikläraryrket. Dessutom verkar en del studenter vilja söka musikerutbildning istället för att börja jobba som musiklärare efter examen. Syftet med denna studie var därför att undersöka musiklärarstudenters motivation för att arbeta som lärare alternativt musiker samt undersöka om det finns några yttre faktorer som samverkar med olika motivation. Datainsamling skedde med hjälp av enkäter som distribuerades till musiklärarprogrammens studenter på fyra olika musikhögskolor i Sverige. Därefter användes statistiska analysmetoder för att analysera insamlade data. Resultatet visar att musiklärarstudenter generellt har en låg eller måttlig motivation att arbeta som musiklärare inom grundskolan men att det inte finns några samband mellan motivationer och yttre faktorer. Det visar också att de som söker vidare till musikerutbildningar efter musiklärarexamen spelar i huvudsak klassisk musik men är ett resultat som inte kan generaliseras till den valda populationen ur statistisk synpunkt. Detta diskuteras utifrån aspekter av yttre och inre motivation. Vidare studier på området behövs för att ta reda på mer varför musiklärarstudenters motivationer ser ut som de gör. 

Abstract [en]

There is currently a shortage of music teachers in Sweden's elementary schools. At the same time, earlier studies indicate that there is a social agenda among students in music teacher education wherein the musicianship has a higher status than the music teacher's profession. In addition, some students will apply for bachelor education instead of starting to work as a music teacher after graduation. The aim of this study was to investigate the motivation of music education students teach music alternatively work as a musician as well as to investigate whether there are any external factors that interact with different motivations. Data collection was done with the help of questionnaires that were distributed to students within music education programs at four different music colleges in Sweden. Subsequently, statistical analysis methods were used to analyze collected data. The results show that music teacher students generally have a low to moderate motivation to work as a music teacher in elementary school, but there are no links between motivations and external factors. It also shows that those who apply for a bachelor education in music after music teacher exams play classical music. These results though cannot be generalized to the chosen population from statistical point of view. This is discussed based on aspects of external and internal motivation. Further studies in the field are needed to find out why the motivation of music teacher students looks like they do.
