Abstract

The article deals with the relationship between experience and memories gained in music lessons of general education school and current music activity and attitude towards music and analyses the effect of that experience on musical behaviour in further life. The focus is on music teacher’s role in that process. The sample of the qualitative study consisted of 20 university students, ten of whom were actively involved with music (singing in the university choir) and ten were not. A phenomenographic approach was used to analyse the interviews. As the result of the analysis, four profiles were developed – two of the profiles characterising those involved with music and two those not involved with music. The profiles are viewed in the article in the context of the experience of music lessons at school. Gaining awareness of those profiles may help music teachers to understand different behaviours of pupils and their relationship with music as a subject, and create diverse learning situations for representatives of different profiles.
