Overview

Music Learning Today: Digital Pedagogy for Creating, Performing, and Responding to Music presents an approach to conceptualizing and utilizing technology as a tool for music learning. Designed for use by pre- and in-service music teachers, it provides the essential understandings required to become an adaptive expert with music technology, creating and implementing lessons, units, and curriculum that take advantage of technological affordances to assist students in developing their musicianship. Author William I. Bauer makes connections among music knowledge and skill outcomes, the research on human cognition and music learning, best practices in music pedagogy, and technology. His essential premise is that music educators and students benefit through use of technology as a tool to support learning in the three musical processes - creating, performing, and responding to music. The philosophical and theoretical rationales, along with the practical information discussed in the book, are applicable to all experience levels. However, the technological applications described are focused at a beginning to intermediate level, relevant to both pre-service and in-service music educators and their students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Thinking about technology tends to fall along two lines: technology as a means for exploring ideas in new ways and with richer depth, or technology as a field of study in its own right. Dr. Bauer has produced a resource that brings these lines together, approaching technology as a maturing discipline while bringing a depth of rigor and scholarship to the discussion that will help music teacher educators use technology in their own teaching and research. This is the rare technology text that will remain relevant for years to come, and become a seminal resource for our profession." —Mitchell Robinson, Associate Professor and Chair of Music Education, Michigan State University

"Dr. Bauer has created a comprehensive guide for how digital technology can support music teaching and learning for every level and type of music class. Thoroughly grounded in the music education and music psychology research literature, this very accessible book is an essential resource for pre-service and in-service music teachers alike." —Rick Dammers, Associate Professor of Music Education, Rowan University

"Recommended." —CHOICE

"Bauer offers music educators - across all career stages - a tailored and informed approach to enhance music learning through thoughtful integration of technology." — Music Education Research
