Traditional music teaching gives more importance to theoretical aspects and instrurnent performance than to creation or research. In the way of allowing also to non-specialist the experience of doing music, we propose and present AbCMus - acronym from Portuguese to Musical Construction Approach - a transdisciplinary approach involving (also but not just) philosophy, psychopedagogy and computer music, where musical knowledge comes from the interaction between the non-specialist and his/ber musical experimentations - and not just as mental rules -, allowing creativity, curiosity, dance, feeling, self-consciousness, game, research. AbCMus also propose the interaction of alternative musical notations, as support for another musical conceptions than the European Erudite. Computational aspects are also presented, as a set of operations to interactive musical knowledge construction and a drag-and-drop user interface proposal.
