I propose an ecological model of musical creativity based on recent developments in the philosophy of perception. Built in response to Peter Webster's 2002 model of musical creativity, the ecological model incorporates digital composition/production and improvisation, alongside the more common school music creativities: listening, playing, composing, and conducting. I suggest that music educators foster musical creativity by providing opportunities for students to engage with the proposed enactive and representational categories of musical creativity.
