Abstract [en]

This study investigated the perceptions of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) of three groups of student music teachers from Brazil, Canada and Sweden. Participants' written observations of a 30-minute video of a music lesson in a Canadian grade one class were interpreted in terms of the components of PCK. Data analysis revealed an emphasis on the teacher’s pedagogical approach, the children’s engagement, and the children’s musical abilities. Participants’ responses were similar regardless of country of origin which led us to think about PCK as a general understanding in educational systems influenced by western ideas.
