A French horn pedagogue’s professional understanding French horn didactopographer teaching students from beginner to expert, with teacher education as an ending point

Main Article Content

Elin Angelo


This article is based on a qualitative study of a Norwegian French horn pedagogue’s professional understanding. Through thematic narrative analysis of observations of her teaching practice, interviews and a survey form, the author identifies three pivots on which the professional understanding is centred: hornists, strategies and merging. The horn pedagogues´ professional understanding is presented in the research narrative ‘The didactopographer’ in the middle of the article, and is discussed within a profession-oriented theoretical framework in which power, identity and knowledge are fundamental aspects. The discussion also draws upon Hans-Georg Gadamer’s views about education and the concept of sensus communis. The author summarises the contributions of this article to basic thinking in music and arts education.
