La formation des goûts musicaux : une approche par les grammaires d’actions et les processus

Abstract : The thesis focuses on the processes of musical discovery. Two sets of questions guide the thesis. The first is about the discovery process itself. The second deals with the genres discovered, the taste rules and the modalities of the opening of repertoires. In conclusion, social origin plays an important role in the processes of discovery up to the end of high school, while the access to higher education modifies the effect. The combinations of the types of social ties with the different forms of homophilia within relationships are also decisive but do not always have the same effects. The use of multiple access devices to music is a privileged means of discovery that mediates the rules that individuals then reinvest. Finally, it seems that the opening of the repertoires of musical tastes is not the result of a discussion of the rules on which they are based, but is mostly done in and by practice.
