This book offers a practical multimedia curriculum designed to teach basic musical concepts through the creative process of music composition. 

Author and award-winning music educator Barbara Freedman presents classroom-proven methods of teaching composition using technology as a tool with which students can create, edit, save, and reproduce music. 

Freedman demonstrates how technology allows one to compose, manipulate, and instantly listen to music electronically - something unheard of in the days where all composition was done manually. One can even print standard Western music notation for others to play without much knowledge of traditional music theory or notation. 

All students can have meaningful hands-on applied learning experiences that will impact their music experience and learning along with their understanding and comfort with 21st-century technology.

Whether your class's primary focus is to use technology to create music or to explore using technology in a unit or two, this book will show you how to do it with practical, tried-and-true lesson plans and student activities.
