Why do students choose flute? : A quantitative study in children's view of flute education in community music schools (English)
Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande studies syfte är att få insikt i vad som påverkar elevers val av tvärflöjt och fortsatta spelande i musik- och kulturskolan.I bakgrundskapitlet presenteras forskning om musik- och kulturskolor samt tidigare forskning kring barn- och ungdomars instrumentval. Som teoretisk utgångspunkt användspositivism. Sammanlagt 97 respondenter i åldrarna 7–22 år genomförde en tvärsnittsdesignad webbenkät. Resultatet har analyserats med en univariat analys där en variabel studerats i taget. I resultatet framkommer det att de största påverkansfaktorerna till att elever valt att spela tvärflöjt är instrumentprovdagar och att känna någon som spelar tvärflöjt. Vidare visar resultatet att det eleverna önskar ha mer av i musik- och kulturskolan är att få möjlighet att spela med andra i band eller orkester. I diskussionen lyfts fem teman upp: genus och instrumentvalet, betydelse av sociala sammanhang, instrumentets egenskaper, förebilders påverkan och lärarens betydelse. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present study is to gain insight into what influencesstudents´ choice of flute and continued participation in Swedish community music schools. Research on community music schools as well as the factors influencinginstrument choice among children and youths are presented in the background section. Positivism was applied as a theoretical lens for the present study. A total of 97 participants ranging from 7 to 22 years of age, filled out a cross sectional websurvey. The result has been analyzed with a univariate analysis where one variable is studied at a time.The results revealed that instrument trial days and knowing someone who plays flute were the most important factors determining the student´ perference for flute playing. Furthermore, the results revealed that students requested more frequent oportunities to play with others in bands or orchestras. In the discussion, five themes are raised: gender and instrument selection, importance of social contexts, the characteristics of the instrument, the impact of role models and the importance of the teacher.
