Abstract

It is hardly clear from the literature how the development of students’ innovative projects in higher music education can be facilitated. We have plenty of suggestions from schools, but what about the nature of the interaction between lecturers and adult students as an innovative project in higher music education unfolds? How can these interactions facilitate the development of the students’ independent thinking? And what is the influence of the lecturers’ approach to the facilitation of creative development in higher music education? This book chapter explores these matters by: (i) reviewing some literature on this topic, including what is meant by innovation-driven projects; and then (ii) profiling an example from a student-led innovative project with undergraduate conservatory students focussed on the use of drama to reduce performance anxiety. Based on the links between the literature and this case, in the conclusion I suggest ten building blocks to facilitate the development of students’ innovative projects in higher music education while preserving the independent thinking of the students.
