The last twenty years have exhibited unprecedented growth of music technology in the fields of commercial music, professional recording studios, personal home studios, and music education in the public school music classroom. With the establishment of school district programs providing students with access to computer technology from state lottery monies, music classrooms are now receiving their own computers and music software. Music software in the marketplace provides challenges to teachers and their efforts to integrate technology to their classroom instruction. How music educators determine what software is needed, what is appropriate, effective, and within their music budget is still a daunting and questioning effort. This can be a deterrent to those band and choral educators, who are initially reticent about music technology from acquiring, learning, and using music technology in their classrooms. This project will address these issues, the changing roles of teachers, music technology's effect on learning, use in the classroom instruction, National Standards, and philosophical viewpoints.
