The field of music raises very interesting challenges to computer science and in particular to Artificial Intelligence. Indeed, as we will see, computational models of music need to take into account important elements of advanced human problem solving capabilities such as knowledge representation, reasoning, and learning. In this paper I describe examples of computer programs capable of carrying out musical activities and describe some creative aspects of musical such programs.
