How do students develop musical creativity? How do teachers perceive it? How is musical creativity developed in collaborative adult improvization? How is it used for a variety of purposes, including as a tool for inclusion in schools? These are just some of the questions considered in this fascinating new work. This comprehensive volume offers insights from new research in the fields of music education, music psychology and music therapy. In twelve chapters written by an international team of experts, the book celebrates the richness and diversity of the many different ways in which young students and adults develop and use musical creativity. Contributions offer a broad focus on studies of the composition/improvization process, considering its conceptualization and practices in a number of contexts. The authors examine how musical creativity can be developed in formal settings, with examples from primary and secondary schools, studio, conservatoire and university settings, as well as specialist music schools and music therapy sessions. The examples offered are drawn from studies carried out in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Portugal, Spain, UK and USA. All authors examine the theoretical underpinnings, socio-cultural context, key findings and implications for policy and practice of their investigations, and a final chapter brings all the conclusions together, as explored from a cross-cultural perspective. This is a book that will fascinate both students and researchers, inspiring them to think deeply about the many different ways in which musical creativity can be developed by individuals and groups of all ages. Contributors provide the latest research insights on the popular theme of musical creativity for a wider audience. The book will be of crucial interest to music educators, policy makers, researchers and music students of all ages, as it draws on basic and applied research from across the globe, promoting coherent and symbiotic links between education, music and psychology research.« Less
