In Swedish formal music education, students from ethnic minorities are significantly underrepresented. In her research, Ylva Hofvander Trulsson has investigated how immigrant parents describe the role of music in their everyday lives and the importance of music learning to their children. She will present data on how the practice of music functions as a potential tool for social success and integration of the children of these parents, how identity and music merges in the ambition of reclaiming a lost social position through the next generation.

Bionotes Ylva Hofvander Trulsson, PhD, is Senior Lecturer in Music Education at the Malmö Academy of Music, Lund University, Sweden, where she teaches at the graduate level and conducts research on intercultural perspectives in music education.
