Why Music Education?
By West Music
12/29/2014 11:19:00 AM
Students consume their music with technology; either on
an iPod, through a music streaming service, or by watching
YouTube. As educators, we begin with the knowledge
a student possesses, and then provide the inspiration,
guidance, and materials for students to expand upon their
current knowledge.

By offering a music technology course, teachers can attract
and retain students from the entire school. Begin the course
by teaching with the music that students already know, then
allow the class to discover the joy of creating and understanding
the elements of music, which can lead to further study in the field
or the desire to learn an instrument. Music technology allows
teachers to increase their value to the school and community by
reaching more students and growing their ensembles.

classroom? Visit musiced.presonus.com to view more from John!
