Abstract [en]

We already know that music instruments are gendered and that this affects the students’ choices of instruments. What is yet to be explored is how these instruments effects the production of gender in the actual classroom. The elaboration of material feminist theories opens up possibilities to study not only what musical instruments represents culturally or discursively, but also how these instruments are entangled in the production of gender in the music classroom. A more elaborated understanding of the relation between gender production and musical instruments could open for new ways of approaching the gender equality issue in music education.
