Quand la musique donne le ton: Culture musicale, scolarité et communauté dans la classe D du lycée Sainte-Anne, Copenhague (2011-2014)

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The Sankt Annæ Gymnasium is renowned for its students’ results and for being home to an intense choral and musicological tradition. This article examines the trajectories of 32 students from the same class, all of whom obtained their baccalaureate in 2014 with a specialization in music and mathematics. A survey documents the role of music in their lives. The respondents describe music as the basis of a high school community. More than a specific form of knowledge, music reinforces intellectual discipline, promotes general culture and offers respite from academic pressure. In order to understand this coexistence between music and education, the relation between “individual” and “community” is examined and the notion of “culture” points to the interface that can describe the pedagogical dynamic in question.
