Computers in music education: amplifying musicality
Computers in Music Education: Amplifying Musicality addresses the question of how computer technologies might best assist music education. Aimed at current and preservice music teachers and designed to be a basic teaching text, it addresses issues from pedagogy through using computers to aid production and presentation of students' musical works, as well as implementing a computer-aided program in the classroom. Computing technology has been rapidly changing, particularly when it comes to the field of music. From notation software to MIDI sound creation, from downloading music from the web for study and enjoyment to posting personal MP3s for mass distribution, the world of computers has transformed how we perform and learn about music. This book, written by a music educator and digital media specialist, cuts through the jargon to present a concise, easy-to-digest overview of the field, with practical suggestions spread throughout.
