A cross-cultural understanding of the value systems of music provides diverse ways to look at creativity and pedagogy of music. This chapter explains the cultural underpinnings of music creativity and pedagogy through the cases of Rachael in the United States and Takeo in Japan. From an Eastern perspective of embodiment creativity, this chapter challenges the view of creativity that seeks more novel expressions and more unique expressions.
