Collaborative partnership is becoming an increasingly popular instructional method in arts education. This article examines the relationship between policy agendas and creativity in music education partnerships. It presents four cases from Ireland, Hong Kong, Norway, and the United States. When viewed as a policy option, partnerships—despite their varying missions, structures, participants, forms, processes, and functions—share the key component of commitment to creativity.
