Technology in Music Education (MUED4002)


This unit will explore the possibilities offered by technology in music teaching and learning. Representative software packages for sequencing, aural training and computer-aided notation will be examined. Students will explore the potential of sound recording and the manipulation of sound files on a computer in a software environment such as GarageBand and Logic, and the associated copyright issues. Management of students within the computer and keyboard labs will be considered. The primary assessments will be the development of a small website that integrates audiovisual content, and an exercise in setting up/running a PA system.
