Abstract [en]


This study was meant to cast a light on the use of music-instruments that exists in preschool environments today. Furthermore the purpose was to find out if instruments first and foremost, actually did exist, and what thoughts had been put behind that decision. The focus was directed towards the preschool teachers and their attitudes towards music instruments among preschool children, at the ages 3 to 5 years. The purpose of the study was to understand how preschool teachers thought of activities where music instruments where used. The study was made from interviews with six different preschool teachers from different preschools. The interviews showed that the preschool teachers thought highly of the use of music instruments among children. They expressed instruments to be important for a number of things that developed different skills within the children.  The study also showed that the six preschools that the teachers represented used some sort of instrument in activities with the children. The teachers talked about the curriculum when explaining how they planned these activities, which also was meant to have an important role in this study.
