A teacher’s approach to the teaching of music is
greatly coloured by his/her own experience
with music. When student-teachers embark on the
journey of becoming educators, they
already have a variety of previous individual
experiences with music, and through
participation in their society and culture, they
hold assumptions based on social
representations of music, musicality and music
education within their society.
A person’s relationship with music is often multi-
faceted, based not only on previous
educational experiences, but also on experiences
with music within the family, school and
wider community. In addition, the status and
function of different types of music within these
settings can powerfully affect an individual’s
perspective on music.
The findings in the study reveal how student-
teachers’ approaches to music and music
education are formed in the interplay between their
personal, educational and societal
experiences with music and music education. These
three components jointly shape the
complex web which illustrates the musical
socialisation of student-teachers.
