A Systems View of Musical Creativity

(p.177) 10 A Systems View of Musical Creativity
Praxial Music Education

David J. Elliott

Oxford University Press

David Elliott argues for a multidimensional and contextual view of musical creativity. He proposes a dialectical process between the standards and traditions of a musical style domain, the music makers and listeners who make up the domain's human field, and individual music makers as performers, improvisers, composers, arrangers, and conductors. Elliott's concept of creativity goes far beyond traditional notions of creativity as composing to include all forms of music making including composition and improvisation. This chapter examines the relationship between Elliott's praxial philosophy of creative experience in music education and the findings of a range of current research studies investigating children's creative processes, products, and achievements.

Keywords:   musical creativity, music making, composition, improvisation, children
