Abstract [en]

Social media has led to new opportunities for learning music. In less formalizedsettings, a whole new arena for learning music has developed. The aim of this arti-cle is to investigate student teachers’ experiences of learning to play an instrumentwith the Internet as a teacher. The investigation was done as an action researchstudy where twelve beginning teacher-training students were given the task to usethe Internet to learn how to play an instrument. The students were organized in peergroups to help each other. Documentation of the progress happened through logbooks.The project lasted for half a year in 2011 and had a triple intention: to provide thestudents with experience about learning how to play by help of the Internet, for thestudents to learn to play a second instrument, and to investigate if and how learningpractices for learning an instrument aided by the Internet could be useful in musicteacher training.
