Why Music Technology?
By West Music Company
12/31/2014 11:24:00 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. Want to know how to use recorded assessments in the music classroom? Visit musiced.presonus.com to view more from John!
