Popular musicians acquire some or all of their skills and knowledge informally, outside school or university, and with little help from trained instrumental teachers. How do they go about this process? Despite the fact that popular music has recently entered formal music education, we have as yet a limited understanding of the learning practices adopted by its musicians. Nor do we know why so many popular musicians in the past turned away from music education, or how young popular musicians today are responding to it. Drawing on a series of interviews with musicians aged between fifteen and fifty, Lucy Green explores the nature of pop musicians' informal learning practices, attitudes and values, the extent to which these altered over the last forty years, and the experiences of the musicians in formal music education. Through a comparison of the characteristics of informal pop music learning with those of more formal music education, the book offers insights into how we might re-invigorate the musical involvement of the population. Could the creation of a teaching culture that recognizes and rewards aural imitation, improvisation and experimentation, as well as commitment and passion, encourage more people to make music? Since the hardback publication of this book in 2001, the author has explored many of its themes through practical work in school classrooms. Her follow-up book, Music, Informal Learning and the School: A New Classroom Pedagogy (2008) appears in the same Ashgate series.

"In this MacArthur Report, Suhr explores digital music communities' use of evaluation games and digital badges for both casual music evaluators and musicians. The first case study focuses on audience evaluation via playing Spotify's Hit or Not game, where game players evaluate a song's hit potential. Suhr explores the gamification of learning and evaluation; when the act of music evaluation turns into a game, what do the players learn, and what may be the implications of this type of evaluation? The second, more in-depth case study on Indaba Music examines the process of gaining badges through involvement in contests. Suhr questions whether or not gaining badges holds significance for musicians. Taken as a whole, this report analyzes how digital badges are perceived by both music listeners and musicians. To what extent can digital badges be an effective way to represent and credit musicians' accomplishments and merits? What are the emerging challenges, benefits, and shortcomings in the use of digital badges as an alternative evaluation mechanism? How do the uses of digital badges in the context of assessing creativity intersect or diverge with the practices related to education and other non-creative fields?"--Provided by publisher.

Activating Diverse Musical Creativities analyses the ways in which music programmes in higher education can activate and foster diverse musical creativities. It also demonstrates the relationship between musical creativities and entrepreneurship in higher education teaching and learning. These issues are of vital significance to contemporary educational practice and training in both university and conservatoire contexts, particularly when considered alongside the growing importance of entrepreneurship, defined here as a type of creativity, for successful musicians working in the 21st century creative and cultural industries. International contributors address a broad spectrum of musical creativities in higher education, such as improvisational creativity, empathic creativity and leadership creativity, demonstrating the transformative possibilities of embedding these within higher music education teaching and learning. The chapters explore the active practice of musical creativities in teaching and learning and recognize their mutual dependency. The contributors consider philosophical and practical concerns in their work on teaching for creativity in higher music education and focus on practices using imaginative approaches in order to make learning more interesting, effective and relevant.
