European perspectives on music education 7. Creativity and innovation

Girdzijauskiene, R and Stakelum, M, eds. (2017) European perspectives on music education 7. Creativity and innovation. Helbling, Innsbruck. ISBN 9783990357514

Abstract

A common belief is that creativity is best cultivated through artistic and musical activity. Is this actually true? What does it mean to be creative in music? What are the characteristics of creative pupils, students, and professional artists? What are the features of a creative music teacher, and what does it mean to teach creatively? Questions such as these are of interest to a sizeable community of musicians, music educators, and representatives of music education policy. They are indicative too of the complexity surrounding a topic well known to politicians, researchers, educators, and creators as a remarkable phenomenon in the context of the human being.
