Emergent music literacy
How do beginners on a music instrument acquire music literacy in a music studio setting?
The study was designed to identify and describe the learning strategies of 8-9 year old music school students by observing and interviewing them during their first year of instrumental lessons. The study of music literacy acquisition is in this thesis based on a sociocognitive view on literacy as a learning process, where knowledge acquisition is regarded as constructed, and learning seen as active meaning-making processes.
The dissertation is available in Norwegian from NMH Brage:
