Abstract
The music industry’s venture capitalists - A case study on a British educational institution of rock- & popmusic

Using focus group- interviews as our primary source of data collection, we presented ungrounded, provocative statements regarding the existence of popular music within the academic world to be able to harvest interesting thoughts and ideas that these discussions brought into light. The results of these discussions are presented in a fashion that mainly concludes the hardships of institutionalising popular music but also to an extent provide valid arguments for its existence within the academic
world. In the concluding chapter we continue this discussion but also draw comparisons to our own context by marrying our background with the results presented. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Vad är syftet och målen med populärmusik i högre utbildning? Detta är en fråga som vi ställt oss under arbetes gång, en av många. Under en vecka i oktober reste vi till The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance i London, England, för att genomföra en fallstudie utav skolan.

Under resultat presenterar vi dessa, med en efterföljande diskussion i nästa kapitel där vi ger vårt svenska perspektiv på hur det fungerar på The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. I den teoretiska bakgrunden redogör vi för de centrala begrepp som vår... (More)

I den teoretiska bakgrunden redogör vi för de centrala begrepp som vår studie förhåller sig till: formellt och informellt lärande, lärandeinom populärmusik och legitimering av en genre. (Less)
