(p.44) Chapter 3 Creating Music
Music Learning Today

William I. Bauer

Oxford University Press

Grounded in the research and best practice literature, chapter 3 discusses concepts and skills, pedagogies, and technology related to musical creativity. Creativity is usually an assumed part of being musical. While there are creative aspects to a variety of musical activities – for instance developing an interpretation of a musical composition involves creative thinking – the focus in this chapter is on the development of original musical ideas through two primary musical processes, improvisation and composition. The chapter provides an overview of creativity, discusses the process of learning to improvise and compose, describes pedagogical strategies to use with students, and suggests technological tools that can support creative musical experiences. Contemporary approaches to musical creativity such as remixing and mashups are also addressed.

Keywords:   creative, creativity, music, music education, technology, compose, composing, improvise, improvisation, remix
