The amount of lessons for musical educa-tion in the curriculum is a limiting factor, the teachers haven’t time to fulfil the goals stated in the curriculum and the pupils will rarely get any deeper knowledge in any other genre besides pop and rock.

Abstract (Swedish)
Studien behandlar musikundervisningens genrebredd i årskurs 7-9. Intervjuer har utförts med fyra högstadielärare och 17 elever i årskurs 8 på fyra olika skolor i en svensk stad. Utgångs-punkten för studien är att undervisning i flera olika genrer främjar elevernas musikkunskap. Lärarna i studien låter förstå att enbart vissa genrer går hem hos eleverna och dessa genrer är oftast pop och rock. Lärarna menar också att det är svårt att undervisa i andra genrer än pop och rock. Tiden räcker inte till för att gå in på mer ovana musikgenrer som ofta innebär en avancerad nivå. Studiens resultat visar att eleverna vill ta del av fler genrer än pop och rock. Antalet lektionstimmar som musikundervisningen får i timplanen är en begränsande faktor,... (More)

Antalet lektionstimmar som musikundervisningen får i timplanen är en begränsande faktor, lärarna hinner inte uppfylla målen i kursplanen och eleverna kan sällan få fördjupade kunska-per i någon genre förutom pop och rock.
