Technology in Music Education

Technology is everywhere in our lives these days and it’s finally becoming integrated with education as well. Sharing with us today is Eugene Cantera of the Dallas School of Music, Inc.

Technology in Music Education

Now more than ever music educators have the opportunity to expand the horizons of the profession.

I recently read a blog that argued ‘technology in music education can never replace the care and nurturing of a great educator’.

That’s like saying ‘the microwave oven will never replace an executive chef’. It’s an invalid argument and moot point at best. The microwave will not make anyone a great chef but most all great chefs have one in their kitchen and know how to use it to their advantage. Technology is only as good as those using it – it won’t make a poor teacher any better.

But what technology can do is allow educators to share their thoughts and ideas easier and allow us to reach new markets and encourage more learning at all levels. Technology can create a sense of community among learners and better communication between students, educators, and peers. Technology can also help keep learning materials, practice notes, and digital files neatly organized and accessible 24-7 in one location.

On of the best reasons for adopting

tech in music education is that it gives educators an opportunity to share our expertise with more potential music makers than ever before. And more people playing music and enjoying its benefits means a boost for instrument manufacturers, print music publishers, recording artists, concert halls and yes… teachers both in and outside of the traditional classroom! We believe that more people (especially adults) becoming

interested and involved in music making will undoubtedly lead to more passionate support for the music in our schools.

Technology is here to stay. An entire generation has accepted tech as ‘normal’ and have come to expect tech to be part of nearly every aspect of their lives. As music educators, we need to be open to using technology to present our ideas in current and relevant formats. Let’s not be the last profession to ‘come around’!

  1. Thanks for the opportunity to contribute Noah! I love that tech itself brings folks together to share ideas. And reaching out has ever been easier in this time of unprecedented communication. I commend all teachers (especially music teachers!) who are investing their time and effort into social media to learn and share, to champion a cause, or simply to make things better, faster, easier, and more fun for themselves and their students. Cheers and best from Dallas and the entire staff of the DLP Music Program.

    • I think that the future of edutacion lies in technology. I think that exposing our students to new and varied technologies will help them in the future, not only while they use the technology that we introduce them to, but also when the next technological breakthrough arrives, our students will embrace it and want to learn how to use it rather than be intimidated by something new and different. Our students will do well because they have been down this road before

    Thanks for writing! It’s great to hear your ideas and thoughts about technology in regards to music education. There are definitely educators out there that are not fast to adopt something new. I completely agree that increasing communication is a vital part of improving education. Using technology does just that. Rather than replacing something, it simply ads another tool to each teachers toolbox which they can pull out when needed. As technology is somewhat new in the field of education, I’m sure there will be some growing pains, but when all is said and done, I see technology contributing immensely in increasing the speed and quality of education in not only music but all subjects.

  3. Hi Noah,
    I just stumbled across your Lessonlogs site through a DLP tweet. Looks great. I will click around and check it out.
    Agreed that technology can be used to a teachers advantage and dove-tail nicely with music instruction. Learning from instructors alongside technology is ideal. I like your analogy of the chef and microwave oven.
    I do think that what the quote ‘technology in music education can never replace the care and nurturing of a great educator’ may mean is, as far as learning music goes, learning guitar in front of your computer with a program is not going to be an ideal replacement for hands on instruction.
    I’ll look forward to checking out your site.

    Cheers!
