A working class hero is something to be...: Hagström's music education and class struggles, cultural capital and democracy in Swedish music education from the 1940s to the 1970

Abstract [en]

his article investigates Hagström's music education in Sweden during the 50ies and 60ies in relation to debates regarding musical and educational values at the time. Hagström was a Swedish company that from the beginning in the 30ies produced accordions, but soon extended the business to include guitars, basses and later organs and synths, as well as having a large chain of music shops, publish sheet music and, from the 1940s, teach music. Based on interviews with eleven people involved in the education combined with archives and periodicals, the aim of this article is to  investigate how status struggles around Hagström's music education can be understood by the use of Bourdieu's theories of symbolic capital and field. The results show how Hagström's music education to some degree could be understood as a working class hero through facilitating learning popular music on popular instruments as well helping democratize the music education in Sweden through increasing the availability of music education for the masses.
