Music not only fun but also necessary. This paper investigates how young people describe their relationship to music. The young people - students - in this study are coming from two different districts of Malmö: One with a population with mainly ethnical Swedish background and the other with a multicultural population. The research question is how we can describe young people's relationship to music on the one hand from the social theories which are presented and on the other hand from own experience as a music teacher. Group interviews are used to get the young people's own descriptions. These interviews are recorded and transcribed. The result shows that music has many functions in the daily lives of young people. Post-modern society seems to have left its mark on young people's daily lives. This means that they have to make their own decisions, but also that they lack contact with adults. Contact with music seems to fill the void created by this lack. Music is an important factor when forming and bringing out an identity of their own. (Less)
