Abstract

This article assesses the impact of new digital technologies on music education. It argues that music teachers have an obligation to understand and integrate the technologies that students bring into their classrooms. New digital technologies must be seen as instruments in their own right, and used to facilitate the development of knowledge and innovative approaches to exploring and understanding music among various emerging learning communities.
