Joy and structure : A study of private guitar tutoring in Sweden and the U.S. (English)
Abstract [en]

This study examines the similarities and differences between four guitar teachers in Sweden and the U.S. The aim of the study is to examine how teachers motivate their pedagogical standpoints and to analyze how they experience the frame factors that limit their teaching. Data were collected through interviews with two Swedish teachers and two American teachers. The result shows that the teachers, despite their seemingly different contexts, actually have a lot of common strategies and approaches. Most significant is the tendency to let the students decide some of the content of the lessons. The study also shows that the diverse historical backgrounds that have influenced the teachers differently still have a great significance of how the teachers act in their own teaching.
