The Headmaster and the Music (English)
This thesis, entitled The Headmaster and the Music, is based on interviews with four headmasters, who are all working in the Swedish compulsory school. The purpose is to investigate how they view music, both in general and as a school subject. Since the research on this topic is scarce, the study can be described as explorative.
The result shows that the headmasters’ personal experiences have an impact on the way they view music. Four different focus points on music in school have emerged from the material, and these represent the four very different views that each headmaster holds. The study also presents a diversity of opinions on the value of music as a school subject. This diversity can be looked upon as problematic, but can also be seen as representing the versatile potential that music comprises as a subject in the Swedish compulsory school.
