This chapter is based on the author's doctoral thesis. She provides an account of a project on creativity in music education, more specifically a musical classroom for developing creativity. The aim of the study is to find examples or mechanisms of creative pedagogy. This study complements the current tradition for studying methods in teaching and learning music. Creative, prescriptive, and communicative designs of teaching and learning interact during sessions of music making. The empirical findings enable a discussion of the conditions that define creative music making as art and/or play as a socio-cultural activity.
