Learning Music from Collaboration
Sawyer, R. Keith
International Journal of Educational Research, v47 n1 p50-59 2008
I draw on two traditions of research: the social psychology of collaborative groups, and the ethnographic study of improvisational performance. I outline a general model of group creativity derived from these traditions. I show how the model can be used to better understand musical competence and performance, and I provide recommendations for how music education can take better advantage of collaboration.
