Summary, in English

This chapter illustrates the intimate connection between creativity and learning in music making and it is suggested that agentive learning across the individual and collective may be studied as expansive learning. By drawing on empirical data from instrumental vocal tuition and professional organ improvisation, it is discussed how individual experiences of tensions and problems in artistic work may be analysed as representations of systemic contradictions and hereby become tools for collective innovative interaction. In order to increase the knowledge about tensions between reproductive and creative aspects of music education and performance, further collaborative studies are recommended.
