Creative Process

Students apply creative thinking to music when they use their skills and knowledge flexibly to create work that has individual voice and vision. A creative process is not a specific formula for developing creative work. Instead, it is following a course of action to guide the development of original work. A creative process includes inquiry and questioning, researching, interpreting, generating, testing, and discussing ideas and solutions, refining work as part of a creative community, and reflecting on the process, product, and performance of making music.
