Actions as components of music masterclasses
This chapter argues that local actions and interactions can be viewed as the components of larger interactional projects, such as instructions. The paper presents the regularly occurring component actions of music masterclass instructions, and details how they are locally negotiated on each occasion. Instructions are shown to be relevant units of interaction, as participants clearly orient to their initiation, implementation and closure. This type of analysis is put forward as a more meaningful approach to studying interaction than a concern over linguistic or other discipline-specific units and their form.
