Abstract
This is a mixed method research study about the instrument choices of upper secondary school students. The students’ own opinion regarding instrument choices is examined. Factors such as why and how a particular instrument has been chosen have been discussed.
How do the students look at their own and others’ choice of instrument? What factors influence their choices? What does the distribution of instruments look like between boys and girls? What does this distribution depend on?
I sent a survey to 12 Upper secondary Schools in Skåne, Sweden. Students enrolled in the Arts Program, Music major, answered the survey. I have also interviewed 5 upper secondary students for further analysis.
My conclusion showed that students made their... (More)

I sent a survey to 12 Upper secondary Schools in Skåne, Sweden. Students enrolled in the Arts Program, Music major, answered the survey. I have also interviewed 5 upper secondary students for further analysis.
My conclusion showed that students made their choices based on the same reasons. Factors that may have influenced their choice of instrument were their general likings, family, idols, friends, siblings and accessibility of an instrument.
The five most common instrumental choices for boys and girls were the same, but in different order. Boys and girls had the same musical habits, but boys were the only ones that mentioned playing in a band. Although their choices did well correlate with previous studies, most students did not see themselves as influenced by others in their choice of instrument. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Detta är en kombinerad kvantitativ och kvalitativ studie om gymnasieelevers instrumentval. I denna undersökning kommer elevernas egen åsikt att bli hörd i fråga om varför, vad och hur de gör när de väljer sina instrument. Hur ser elever på sina egna och andras val av instrument? Vilka faktorer finns det som påverkar elever i deras instrumentval? Om det är så att tjejer och killar väljer olika instrument, vad beror det i så fall på?
Det gjordes en enkätundersökning på 12 skånska gymnasieskolor. Enkäten har blivit besvarad av elever som går estetiska programmet med inriktning musik. I undersökningen intervjuades även fem gymnasieelever för ytterligare fördjupning.

Det gjordes en enkätundersökning på 12 skånska gymnasieskolor. Enkäten har blivit besvarad av elever som går estetiska programmet med inriktning musik. I undersökningen intervjuades även fem gymnasieelever för ytterligare fördjupning.
Det framkom att elever ofta hade gjort sina instrumentval av samma anledningar. Faktorer som påverkat i instrumentvalet var bland annat intresse, familj, tillgänglighet av instrument, kompisar, idoler, syskon m.m.
De fem vanligaste instrumenten hos både killar och tjejer var samma, men i olika ordning. Killar och tjejer hade samma musikvanor, med skillnaden att det endast var killar som nämnde att de spelade i band. I många fall ansåg de sig även vara opåverkade av andra i sina instrumentval. Det visade sig att deras val stämde väl överens med vad tidigare studier kommit fram till. (Less)
