From Guided Practice to Self-imposed Learning Activities

The overall aim of the present study is to stimulate reflective practice in both students and teachers about vocal and instrumental learning activities in relation to Western classical music, jazz/improvised music and folk music.

Thus, the present study contributes to knowledge about how musical expertise is developed by

  • exploring the students’ and teachers’ conceptions of practice and learning; 
  • exploring cross genre characteristics in music students’ learning activities; 
  • exploring the relationships between the instrumental lessons as a form of guided practice and the student’s self-imposed learning activities.
