Technology has revolutionised contemporary society, particularly in
the field of music production and consumption. Powerful and flexible
computer-centred composing and recording methods continue
to evolve, whilst the ways in which we access and listen to music
through streaming libraries, digital downloads and iPods have completely
changed our engagement with, and perception of, the medium
of music. Although music educators in some countries have been
cautious in their responses to these innovations, it is now clear that
new media have had a significant influence upon music learning and
teaching in schools and colleges.
European Perspectives on Music Education, Volume 1, presents teachers, students, researchers, and all those who are interested in music education with an overview of the position and role of new media in music education in Europe. Contributions from Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, England, Finland, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and The Netherlands offer contemporary national perspectives on music teaching in schools.
