Research work: master thesis and & PhD project
PhD-project 2008-2012 (in progress): Perspectives in and on Music Instrument Pedagoues Practice. The research question is: "Which pivot points can be identified within diverse music instrument pedagogues practice, and how do these inform considerations about music pedagogues professionalism? ". The thesis contains three articles based on studies of different music pedagogues practice; one jazzeducator, one French horn pedagogue, and one music educator teaching several instruments in the MA-school, and also music in compulsory school. The micro ethnographical approach to these studies are inspired by actor-network theory and narratology. The thesis also contains one article who examines theoretical approaches to this work, especialy focusing Martin Heideggers and Michel Foucaults philosophies.
Master thesis 2000: Newly Educated Musicschool Teachers` Professional Competence. A research project based on qualitative interviews with 5 newly educated instrument teachers, with 1-5 years teacher experience. These teachers dosent seem to consider music teacher education very suceessfull for their own development of professional teacher competence. A main question after the research remains - why not?
Master thesis 2002: Musicschool Teachers` professional Competence A research project based on analysis of official documents concerning instrument teacher education and municipal music- and cultural school. Results seem to point out that the competence asked for in the praxis arena very much seem to be similar to what the education aims for, both musically and pedagogically. In spite of this, national and international research projects concludes that instrument teacher student does not seem to develop this competence, but in stead aim for competence as performers. The question still remains -why? It seems important to find out what kind of unofficial mechanisms that cause this, and if there is somethings that can be done to make instrument teacher student develop both instrumental and good pedagogical competence.
