aim of this educational developmental study is to develop optimal
multidisciplinary studies in music education for class teacher education at the
University of Turku, which could respond to the work requirements of future
teachers. The research consists of four design cycles, which were carried out
in 2013–2017. The data includes the written feedback from 77 student teachers
at the end of their music studies, as well as group interviews and materials
from three future workshops with 5 participants. This article focuses on the
first cycle from 2013 to 2014. The research questions were to find out: How do
the student teachers appraise the aims and contents of the music study modules
considering the class teacher’s requirements in working life? What kind of developmental
ideas did the student teachers have concerning the study modules? The data
consisted of 77 student teachers’ writings. The data was analyzed using content
analysis. The students’ fields of knowledge were divided into three classes: 1)
the aims of musical activities, 2) ways of action in music education, 3)
content and materials. The results showed that students wished for an open and
supportive learning atmosphere and consideration for music’s impact on
wellbeing. They also favored, learning by doing, teaching at a suitable level,
activating pupils, supporting different action techniques, practical content,
and materials.
