Composing collaboratively in small groups has become an established activity in the national curricula of many countries. In this presentation, views of musical creativity will be first considered in relation to collaborative composition, and its implications as a pupil-centred learning procedure. Then, a sample of reports documenting research on collaborative composition carried out by music educators in educational contexts where they acted as teachers to the pupils or as facilitators will be reviewed. Finally, the creative projects and the research questions and designs of these projects will be analysed and compared, and methodological issues in relation to the value of the knowledge accumulated with the action-research approach will be discussed.
