Music Learning Today

Oxford University Press

An understanding of various technologies is an important component of one’s TPACK. This chapter presents the essential technological knowledge and skill necessary for a music educator to successfully begin to utilize technology for music learning. Topics include explanation of the key components of computers and their operating systems, description and comparison of MIDI and digital audio, discussion of graphic and video media, identification of types of music software and the evaluation of software titles, and exploration of Internet resources that may be used for music learning. Free and low cost implementations of these technologies are emphasized; using technology to facilitate music learning does not require excessive amounts of money. Since technologies are always being refined and improved, with new technologies that may be applicable to music learning constantly emerging, music educators need to maintain a mindset of ongoing professional learning in this area.

Keywords:   technology, music, music education, software, hardware, audio, Internet, web, computers, MIDI
