Abstract [en]

Much has been written about expressivity by philosophers, composers, musicologists, and psychologists, but little is known about how the musicians of tomorrow — music students — approach this subject. This paper reports an exploratory study in which 135 students from music conservatories in three countries (England, Italy, Sweden) filled out a questionnaire that addressed four themes: (a) conceptualizing expressivity, (b) expressivity in everyday practice, (c) expressivityin music teaching, and (d) novel teaching strategies. The results suggest that students define expressivity mainly in terms of communicating emotions and `playing with feeling'. Expressive skills are regarded as highly important by students, and they would like to practice more on expressivitythan is currently the case. However, most students are skeptical toward using computers in teaching of expressivity since they cannot see how such applications could work. The results suggest that expressivity deserves more attention in music education than has hitherto been the case.
