Pedagogy and learning with musical creativities

Show Summary Details


This chapter explains some of the educational applications of musical creativities, which are broadly interpreted as a composite of practices. It shows how the three dimensions of authorship, practice, and mediation basically change the way musical creativities can be used. It tries to describe the guidelines that have sufficient utility, and still resist the tendency to prescribe methods. The chapter also provides some narratives and sketches from the field of music in education.

Keywords: educational applications; musical creativities; authorship; practice; mediation; sufficient utility; music in education
