    Om hur musikterapi definieras2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine and problematize a specific definition of

    music therapy: the 1996 to 2011 World Federation of Music Therapy definition.

    The following questions are raised: what kind of language is in use, in what way

    exist silent expectations regarding pre-understanding, what kind of definition is it

    and is it valid and useful? Theoretical starting points are hermeneutics, analytical

    philosophy of language in the tradition following G. E. Moore and modern theories

    concerning definitions according to A. Gupta. In order to answer the questions the

    method of ”text explains text” has been employed. The definition has been

    interpreted by using other texts from neighboring fields of research, and an attempt

    has been made to identify the place and function of the definition in the traditions

    it refers to: music, therapy and music therapy. The result show that the definition

    makes use of an expanded language and presupposes an understanding of above all

    ”music” that goes beyond what is intuitively self-evident. It appears to be an

    explicative analytical definition and a circular definition. However it is both valid

    and useful from the perspective of what Gupta calls the ”theory of revisions of

    definitions” and as such it is close to what Bruscia calls ”working definitions”.

    Att göra en enhet av olika rytmer: Hur elever på estetiska programmets spetsutbildning i musik uppfattar polyrytmik i ensemble2024Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates how polyrhythmic practice within music ensemble in cutting edge education in upper secondary school is perceived. It also investigates the connection between rhythmic stability and polyrhythmic studies. The purpose is to get more knowledge about music students’ perception of polyrythmic practice in music ensemble. The research subjects got acquainted with the polyrhythmic ratio of 3:4. The data which consisted of film and one to one interviews with two ensembles was done in a small-scale quality analysis through a fenomenographic theory method. It showed that polyrhythms are perceived in many ways, but that a rhythmic focus can enhance the understanding of complex rhythms, pulse feel and, in some cases, musical interplay. The study confirmed previous research that binary subdivision is the most common way to perceive pulse within polyrhythmic ratios. Further research could be done on reference rhythms and specific instrumentalists’ perception of polyrhythms to further investigate how the sense of pulse and polyrythmic understanding is perceived.

    "Musiken ligger i dvala": En fenomenografisk studie av elevers uppfattningar av fenomenet notläsning i musikklass med körprofil i svensk grundskola2024Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to contribute with more knowledge about how students in a high school music class with choir profile perceive the phenomenon of reading music. In the background chapter, a short account of the history of musical notation is presented, an account of the phenomenon of a music class with choir orientation as the term is used in this study, as well as definitions of terms that are used in this study. The prior research focuses on the phenomenon of reading music from the perspective of the special difficulties that singers experience in comparison to instrumentalists. The theoretical perspective of phenomenography is the basis for the study. Through semi-structured qualitative interviews with seventeen students in eighth grade from a music class with choir profile, empirical data has been collected which has then been analyzed with a phenomenographical analysis. According to the study the students perceive the phenomenon of reading music in six qualitatively different ways: As a tool for learning music by decoding an interval between two notes, as a tool for distributing and preserving music across historical distances, as a tool for independence and variation in interpretation and performance based on a notated source material, as a tool that makes possible a higher work rate in music lessons, as a tool for overview in an otherwise ear-based personal learning strategy, as well as an impeding factor for interplay, singing technique and confidence in the performance of choir music. The results are compared to prior research, and possible pedagogical implications are presented.

    Modus Operandi: En undersökning om gymnasieelevers upplevelse av och förhållande till kyrkotonarter.2024Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta självständiga arbete vill få kunskap om hur gymnasieelever på estetiska programmet upplever och förstår kyrkotonarter, genom fenomenologiskt tolkade intervjuer med gymnasieelever samt en fenomenologiskt inspirerad undervisningsmetod. Resultaten av intervjusvaren skulle kunna tolkas som att elevernas upplevda förståelse av kyrkotonarter nyanseras av ett fokus på den egna upplevelsen av kyrkotonarter som ett komplement till den musikteoretiska förståelsen.

    Digitala verktyg och elevers motivation i musikproduktion på gymnasiet2024Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka vilka roller DAW-program har inom undervisningen i musikproduktion på gymnasial nivå utifrån elevers och lärares perspektiv samt lärarens bild av hur diskrepans mellan preferenser kring DAW-program kan påverka elevers motivation för lärande i undervisning i musikproduktion. Datainsamlingen skedde genom en semistrukturerad intervju med två gymnasielärare och genom en enkätundersökning bland fyra gymnasieklasser från olika årskurser som studerar musikproduktion. För analysen av det kvalitativa materialet användes innehållsanalys för att hitta underliggande teman kopplade till studiens syfte och frågeställning. Resultatet har därefter diskuterats utifrån ett  sociokulturellt teoretiskt perspektiv. Resultatet av studien visar att diskrepanser mellan elevers tidigare erfarenheter av DAW-program kan påverka deras motivation då de saknar kunskap i hur de kan uttrycka sig musikaliskt med det DAW-program de förväntas använda i gymnasieundervisningen. Med rätt vägledning och stöttning kan eleverna dock övervinna denna inverkan på deras motivation och lyckas med sina studier.

    "Oj, vad roligt med en tjej som spelar trummor!": Fyra trummisars upplevelser och tankar analyserade ur ett genusperspektiv.2024Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande studie är att ur ett genusperspektiv synliggöra fyra trummisars uttryckta upplevelser och tankar av att vara trummis. Två kvinnliga och två manliga trummisar har intervjuats och därefter har deras upplevelser och tankar analyserats utifrån ett genusperspektiv för att hitta likheter och skillnader i hur det är att vara trummis som man respektive kvinna. För att komma fram till studiens resultat användes semistrukturerade intervjuer. Resultatet visar att det både finns likheter och skillnader i manliga och kvinnliga trummisars upplevelser och tankar om att vara trummis. De största skillnaderna rör ämnena förebilder, orosmoment och bemötandet av andra.

    Ett laddat musikaliskt moment: En kvalitativ studie kring elgitarristers uttryckta upplevelser och reflektioner kring det musikaliska momentet improvisation2024Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to contribute more knowledge into what high school students with the main instrument electric guitar express in their experiences and reflections about the musical element of improvisation analyzed from a social psychological perspective. In the study, a qualitative research method was used, consisting of an improvisation in the form of a jam as a trigger before the focus group interview and a semi-structured focus group interview with two participants who were in the third year of the aesthetic program with a majoring in music and had electric guitar as their main instrument. The results show that the participants expressed experiences of improvisation change depending on the context in which it is performed, that the participants experience improvisation as something personal and creative, that the participants experienced a greater expectation from their surroundings to be able to improvise because they are guitarists, and that the participants had difficulty defining what practice within improvisation entails.
