Abstract

The important role that creativities play in children’s cultural, social and emotional development has been well recognised. Nevertheless, studies have also revealed that creativity is often a neglected aspect in music education. Based on data collected through interviews with ten music teachers, this chapter addresses the insufficient creativity in music education practice in Greek-Cypriot Primary education. The aim of this chapter is to offer an overview of the symbiotic weaknesses of the approach to creativities through music in Primary education in the Greek-Cypriot educational system, examining how music teaching has been deployed as a tool for strategic interests. In addition, it highlights the need for a change in mentality on the part of the agents that constitute the leaders and managers of the educational system in Greek-Cypriot Primary schools, shedding light on broader pedagogical aspects of the music lesson as vital for the development of creativities in music and through music.
