Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur fyra pensionärer ser på sin motivation och lärandeprocess samt undersöka vad som krävs av en lärare som undervisar äldre elever. I studien har fyra pensionärer intervjuats, undervisats i elbas och observerats. Resultatet från intervjuerna analyserades, kategoriserades och jämfördes därefter med tidigare forskning inom närliggande forskningsområden.

Resultaten visar att informanterna initialt hade tydliga och specifika målsättningar med elbasundervisningen och även att de upplever att de behållit dessa genom hela studien. Det framgår att det vid undervisning av denna åldersgrupp är viktigt att ta tillvara på elevernas tidigare erfarenheter, musikaliska preferenser och att undervisningen i... (More)

Resultaten visar att informanterna initialt hade tydliga och specifika målsättningar med elbasundervisningen och även att de upplever att de behållit dessa genom hela studien. Det framgår att det vid undervisning av denna åldersgrupp är viktigt att ta tillvara på elevernas tidigare erfarenheter, musikaliska preferenser och att undervisningen i stort bör utgå från dessa förutsättningar. Resultatet visar även att lärarens undervisningsskicklighet och hur interaktionen mellan lärare och elev på lektionerna påverkar elevens lärande och motivation. Informanterna har i studien upplevt både kognitiva och motoriska svårigheter samt ett visst mått av självkritik som på flera sätt påverkat deras lärande och motivation. (Less)

The results of the interviews were then analyzed, categorized and compared with findings from related fields of research.

The results show that the informants initially had clear and specific objectives with the electric bass teaching and also that they felt that they retained these objectives throughout the study. It shows that when teaching students of this age group it’s important to acknowledge the students' previous experiences, musical preferences and that the teaching in general should be based on these conditions. The results also show that the importance of the teacher's relational skills and how the interaction between teacher and student affects the students’ learning and motivation. The informants in the study experienced that cognitive, motor difficulties and also a degree of self-criticism in several ways influenced their learning and motivation. (Less)
