Viulupedagogiikan vaiheet : musiikkiesteettisen ajattelun heijastuminen viulunsoitonopetukseen 1750-luvulta 1970-luvulle
The purpose of my study has been to clarify how the teaching of violin playing has changed since the 1750's and what are the general guidelines of the development. I have described the content of violin pedagogy during this period by comparing with each other the major violin schools that were written between 1751 and 1977. I have also looked for reasons for why violin pedagogy has changed over time.

The first part provides the historical background for the study by dealing with the history of violin pedagogy and musical aesthetics. The second part comprises the content analysis of fourteen most significant violin schools and pedagogical works from different historical periods.

In the third part the main Iines of the development between violin pedagogy and musical aesthetics are compared, and conclusions are drawn on the common features of violin pedagogy and on the effects of musical aesthetics on violin pedagogy at different periods of time. Both quantitative and qualitative analysis showed that the main topics of violin pedagogy have changed during the time period of my study. The violin pedagogy of the 18th century concentrated on diminution technique and on the rules of using the bow. In the 19th century the pedagogues began to pay more attention to the style and interpretation of music, and gradually the idea of a personal subjective taste was accepted.
