Abstract and Keywords

This chapter engages with the Core Perspectives and Provocations by proposing that it is possible to revolutionize music education by engaging with the kind of music made with technology that Ethan Hein advocates in chapter 36; but at the same time, not to abandon what we know about tried and tested music pedagogies. It proposes that the way to do this is to take a truly pluralist approach to music, one that embraces all genres, especially popular music genres, by taking the time to learn about them and legitimize them in the music classroom. Recent research on the creative processes of traditional composers and DJs reveals that technology directly affects both, and this understanding, alongside Barbara Freedman’s approach, which allows students to lead with technology, breaks down the borders that prevent such a pluralist approach from being taken. The chapter concludes that such barriers have already been broken in the professional, metamodern musical world.

Keywords: creativity, composition, pluralism, popular music, culture, technology, education, youth, teenagers
