In this paper, formal music education is seen as a starting point to understand how digital music games can further innovate to heighten their educational potential. In the paper, seven opportunities for innovation of digital music games are presented. These are the result of observations of music lessons, and interviews and stimulated recall sessions with music educators. During the data analysis, the researchers looked at the strategies used by the educators and compared these to an overview of digital music games they had made, in order to formulate the suggestions for innovation for digital music games.
