Hur hanterar musiklärare målbrottet hos före detta gossopraner och altar?

Abstract
The study is based on semi-structured interviews with two music teachers, one at the elementary and high school Sankt Annæ Gymnasium (Copenhagen) and one at the elementary and high school Adolf Fredriks musikklasser (Stockholm). By asking more or less identical questions to both of them I could clearly see the differences between the two schools. At Sankt
Annæ boys and girls have separate teaching already from the third grade.
In Adolf Fredrik they sing in mixed choirs throughout the elementary school. At Sankt Annæ, the boy’s choir has a high status, with extra tuition and professional male singers. In Adolf Fredrik, the boy’s

choir stands more in the shadow of the girl’s choir and consists only of sopranos and altos.The teaching of voice break boys is also very different. Sankt Annæ has a special voice break
choir, and the boys must leave the boys choir at first sign of voice break. In Adolf Fredrik they may stay and sing falsetto if they want to. At Sankt Annæ they think falsetto singing is harmful for the voice. Adolf Fredrik has no voice break choir, but a mixed choir with boys
and girls. Sankt Annæ seems to have a more scientific approach to singing. The school has its own voice doctor, and has produced a special voice break-brochure with information about the voice break physiology and sequence stages. Adolf Fredrik has no strict guidelines how to
teach during voice break, they rather look at what seems to be best for the individual. (Less)
