  • Notes:
    This paper explores the concepts of ?ideal musicians? constructed by advanced performers of Western classical, jazz, popular and Scottish traditional music. The question of whether there continues to be a persistent dominant discourse concerned with concepts of ideal musicians in the Western tradition, or whether alternative discourses are evident, is explored. Secondly, in order to address the question of whether concepts of ideal musicians are fixed or malleable, concepts evident amongst undergraduate performers are compared with those held by professional musicians. Analysis of quantitative data (N = 244) measuring beliefs about the nature of musical expertise is presented together with qualitative narratives generated from indepth interviews with twenty-seven advanced performers representing four musical genres.
