The Orchestral Musician and Instrumental Teacher : A study about the interplay between two professions (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det här examensarbetet handlar om orkestermusiker tillika instrumentallärare, och hur de ser på samspelet mellan yrkena. Arbetet har två vinklingar; hur musikern påverkas av läraren, och hur läraren påverkas av musikern. Jag har använt mig av kvalitativa intervjuer med sex informanter som alla jobbar både som stråkmusiker och pedagoger. De har olika bakgrund, och olika erfarenhet av undervisning. Som teoretisk bakgrund använder jag ett förhållningssätt där mästarläran, och läraren som coach står i centrum. Mitt resultat är bland annat att musikern blir mer medveten och analytisk till sitt eget och andras spel och att läraren blir en utövande mästare som håller hög spelnivå. Jag diskuterar vilka olika roller mina informanter kan ha, hur deras svar kan relateras till mästarläran kontra coachning samt förmedlad kontra konstruerad kunskap. Det jag kommit fram till är att mina informanter ser jobbkombinationen som värdefull och berikande för båda yrkena, men att tiden ofta inte räcker till.

 

Abstract [en]

This study focuses on orchestral musicians who also are instrumental teachers, and how they approach the interrelationship between the two professions. The study presents two views: how the teacher influences the musician, and how the musician influences the teacher. I have based the study on qualitative interviews with six interviewees, all of whom work as string players and pedagogues. They all have different backgrounds, with various experiences of teaching. As a theoretical background, I have used an approach where master teaching, or the teacher as a coach, is central. Among my findings, I have discovered that the musician becomes more conscious and analytic toward his/her own style of playing, but also towards others as well. The teachers are masters and they possess a high technical level in their playing. Further, I discuss what roles the interviewees may have, and how I can relate their answers to my theoretical background. The interviewees make clear that working as both a teacher and a musician is valuable, but the issue of time can be a problem.
