Music has long been at the forefront of technological advancement, with music educators well-positioned to exploit its potential. This article uses various scenarios to illustrate the visions and values required of educational leadership to change the culture of music in schools. In it I elaborate on some of the diverse musical creativities that can be broadly construed as a composite of practices that are refreshed and re-envisioned through digital technology. I present vignettes and narratives from the field of music in education that allow us to enter the realms of resourcefulness and reflectiveness of artist-musicians and, importantly, examine student-teacher experiences that lie behind an understanding of multiple musical creativities. These vignettes and personal narratives provide examples of how: (1) musical creativities are fostered by utilizing digital technologies in educational practice; (2) musical creativities and digital technology underpin innovative educational practices; and (3) leaders in education and elsewhere have the power and influence to change school culture and promote diversity in musical creativities and the use of digital technology in education.
