Overview

Computers in Music Education addresses the question of how computer technologies might best assist music education. For current and preservice music teachers and designed as a development tool, reference resource, and basic teaching text, it addresses pedagogical issues and the use of computers to aid production and presentation of students’ musical works.

Written by a music educator and digital media specialist, it cuts through the jargon to present a concise, easy-to-digest overview of the field, covering:

  • notation software
  • MIDI sound creation
  • downloading music
  • posting personal MP3s for mass distribution.

While there are many more technical books, few offer a comprehensive, understandable overview of the field. Computers in Music Education is an important text for the growing number of courses in this area.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Computers in Music Education is a welcome addition to the literature on music and technology. The book is admirable in its clarity and extensive coverage of a domain that extends beyond the experience and expertise of many music educators." —Music Forum

'Computers in Music Education is a helpful book for the music education seeking to extend thei knowledge of all types of technology in instructional settings, and extends beyond the narrow focus implied by the title... As a practical guide it has many strengths, not least in its breadth of coverage, and it is likely to promote thinking about key issues for music educators.' - The British Journal of Music
