Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe present article discusses creativity conceptions which have echoed in education and music education fields, analyzing different creative concepts that guide researches and questions. Starting from creativity conceptions that guided educational tendencies during the 1960‘s and 1970‘s, we present emergent tendencies during the 21st century from the creative learning concept. From this point of view the focus move to musical practices culturally placed where the children’s creativity occurs, thinking that this creativity is needed to be promoted inside a wide ethical dimension, stressing the transformations in the human relationships that students experience and expand in the creative learning when they participate in a community musical practice. To conclude, we point out that the creative learning focus could indicate a possible alternative when we wish to build music education in the primary school contributing to educate people to be more sensitive, supportive, critical and transformative using the musical creation as a possibility to think in a better world.
