    Goals. My master's thesis' goal is trough interviews to clarify young amateur musicians' views on inspiring pupils towards music and encouraging music hobby in elementary school music education. The focus is on reflecting interviewees' own experiences on elementary school music education and music as a hobby, and through these reflections to find thoughts and ideas that could be applied in elementary school music education. Another goal is to clarify interviewees' own experiences on learning, composing and improvising music, and how these experiences could be applied to music education. Methods. I did an interview study by interviewing four young adult amateur musicians. My interviewing method was qualitative semi-structured theme interview. Interviews themes were connected to my theoretic framework. Interviewees narrated their experiences, views and ideas based on three themes. From transcribed interviews I analysed the substantive contents and connected them to the theoretic framework. Results and conclusions. The interviews showed that rich and versatile music-making is important in inspiring pupils towards music and encouraging music as a hobby. It is also important to know pupils' skills. Activities outside classroom were seen important as well by the interviewees, especially band practicing. According to interviewees, learning music tracks by listening is challenging but possible. In their mind, dividing class into groups, thorough preparing to activities and instruments as well as simplifying the tasks are important factors in learning music by listening. Also goals in learning should be suitably challenging. Interviewees' thoughts on composing and improvisation in music education were similar with learning by listening. Interviewees also thought that composing and improvisation are closely connected to each other. According to interviewees, learning by listening, composing and improvisation in music education makes learning more meaningful to pupils, and inspires them towards music and encourages music as a hobby.
