One person found this helpful. In a field that changes every year, Andrew Brown’s book is the most comprehensive and current that I know.

I am using it as the backbone of an MTeach music tech course I’m lecturing in this year and it has at least one chapter to cover every topic the course does. It’s important to understand that what this book does best is introduce technologies and ways amplidying using them rather than spoon-feed ready-made lessons to a music teacher.

There is, of course, plenty of use for the latter, but this book is for teachers who already know how they best teach music, know their repertoire and resources well, but are finding it hard to find pedagogically beneficial ways of integrating technology into the music classroom. This book will give you literally hundreds of approaches. This book provides a creative production approach to technology in music education and a clear philosophy for music practice that weaves technology into educattion music making for 21st century musicians and educators.


The book layout is clear and covers technology from the mundane use of spreadsheets for timetabling instrumental music lessons through to the exciting generative and algorithmic music of computer composition.
