The study is based on qualitative interviews with seven vocal students at secondary school and folk high-school.
The result of the study shows factors which - according to the students - creates desire to sing and practice singing. Students feel the urge to sing and practice when they feel they can sing, and when they are challenged and developed. The opportunity to express oneself through the music and to work with others and in secure environments also creates the urge to sing and practice singing. Having goals to work towards also creates desire for the students to sing and practice singing. The result also shows the students different approaches to singing and practicing singing. Students get a lot of feedback from their environment on their voices. Feedback on singing voice is not easy to relate to according to the informants. Feedback on practice is significantly easier to relate to, according to the informants, but not as common. (Less)
