Objectives: The purpose of this study is to discuss what creativity and convergence are in music education and to suggest teaching-learning methods for music prioritizing creativity and convergence. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study performed contents analysis based on the data related to creativity and convergence education resulting from literature methodology and music textbooks. Literature study was performed to find the connection between creativity and convergence education and we performed an analysis divided into three categories consisting of ‘contents’, ‘method’, and ‘composition and environment’ based on instances where such connection were found in music textbooks. Findings: First, a connection between the musical concepts and activity must be provided in terms of contents. Second, there must be a learning method to converge the music and other various fields and a problem solving method learning as well. Third, appropriate questions and guidance for learning must be provided by teachers. Improvements/Applications: Emphasizing creativity and convergence in music education will cultivate necessary learning competence for the future and the importance of music education will be further recognized in the field of education.
