Abstract (Swedish)
Begreppet time används ofta av musiker och pedagoger verksamma inom den afroamerikanska musiktraditionen. Trots att begreppet är används frekvent finns det ingen vedertagen uppfattning kring vad time egentligen innefattar. Därför har vi undersökt innebörden av begreppet, samt hur det används i en pedagogisk kontext. Undersökningen har skett genom en kombinerad intervjustudie och enkätundersökning. Resultatet visar att time för många är själva förhållandet mellan det som spelas och en puls. Bra time kan alltså på intet sätt likställas med metronomisk exakthet, utan är snarare ett kontrollerat förhållningssätt till en puls i ett organiskt skeende. Många framhåller också bristen på undervisningsmaterial inom time, samtidigt som begreppet... (More)

Abstract
Musicians and educators active in the tradition of afroamerican music often use the term time. Despite that the term is frequently used, there is no convention of what the term really comprises. Therefore, the meaning of this study is to investigate the meaning of the term time, and how it is used in an educational context. The study is built upon a combination of interviews and a survey. The result show that according to a majority of our participants, time is the relationship between what is played and a given pulse. Therefore, great time should not be equal to the accuracy of a metronome, but rather a controlled approach to a pulse in an organic flow. The participants also emphasises the lack of educational material about time, at the... (More)
