We are musicians, but does fewer want to play bass and flute? : A study of children's choice of instruments to the voluntary musical education. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att få en djupare insikt i hur sociala och kulturella faktorer påverkar barn och ungdomar i deras val av instrument för studier på en kulturskola. I bakgrundskapitlet presenteras tidigare forskning och annan relevant litteratur inom studiens ämnesområde. Studiens teoretiska utgångspunkter utgörs av det sociokulturella perspektivet. Studiens metod utgörs av den kvalitativa intervjun. Sex nybörjare, tre flickor och tre pojkar i åldrarna 8-10 deltog i studien. I resultatet framkommer att omgivningen, media, musikskolan och barnet själv är faktorer som på olika sätt har påverkat barnen i deras val av instrument. Framförallt visas på att förebilder har haft en inspirerande påverkan och att informanterna bildade sig en egen uppfattning av vilka instrument de gillade och ogillade om de hade fått prova på att spela dessa. Även diskussionen lägger tonvikt på förebilder och barns egen uppfattning om val av instrument. Detta diskuteras i relation till tidigare forskning samt det sociokulturella perspektivet. 

Abstract [en]

The study aims to gain a deeper understanding of how social and cultural factors influence children and young people in their choice of instruments for studies at a music school. In the background chapter, previous research and other relevant literature in the study subject are presented. The study's theoretical point is the socio-cultural perspective. The study's method is the qualitative interview. Six novices, three girls and three boys between the ages of 8-10 participated in the study. The result shows that the environment, media, music school and the child itself are factors that in different ways have influenced the children in their choice of instruments. The result highlights that role models have had an inspiring effect and that informants formed their own opinion of what instruments they liked and disliked if they had the chance to play them. The discussion chapter also puts emphasis on role models and children’s own perception in the matter of choice of instruments. This is discussed in relation to previous research, and the socio-cultural perspective.
