Abstract [en]

At a few universities in Sweden students can chose a preschool teacher education programme with a music profile. At one of these universities, a study was undertaken that aimed to explore student teachers' understanding of self as musician, their future professional role as a preschool teacher and how the education equips for that. Sixteen students participated in focus group interviews, and thirty students answered a questionnaire. The study shows that almost three-quarters of the students did not choose the music profile for the sake of the specific profile in music. Instead, it happened that this was the programme they managed to get into or they found the location of the education suitable. How, then, to develop the design of a music profile that prepares preschool teacher students to become skilled leaders and a source of inspiration for music in preschools?.
