Abstract [en]

If monopoly of recognized skill is anything to go by, then, prima facie,

musicians & music teachers are in a poor position to claim professional

status. But while laymen cannot be effectively excluded from music making

they can be barred from entering certain positions, occupations, &

organizations. Swedish music education is an example of a successful

monopolization, which later became precarious: the Swedish Royal Academy

of Music provided the only educational route to the title of director

musices, which in turn was a requisite for admission to a number of positions

and occupations. After WWII, a sharply increasing demand for music

education created a need for the mass production of music teachers, unsettling

the topology of tasks in the field. The aim of this paper is to examine

the historical case of Swedish music education, and to theoretically

explore the demands raised by a sudden rise in demand upon a precarious

monopoly of recognized skill.
