Abstract and Keywords

Music technologies have lead us to a transformation of perceptions and the reinvention and refinement of our creative music making. They have also transformed our language and are providing access to musical and sonic possibilities that transcend the facilities of traditional music notation and analysis. They can facilitate new ways of collaborating and sharing and have become intertwined with almost all commercial and contemporary arts practices in the twenty-first century. Within this contemporary digital cultural landscape, a fluent and adaptable working knowledge of music technology should be foundational to any taught music curriculum. This chapter looks at examples from contemporary practice to inform a strategy for developing effective curricula for higher music education where fluency in digital literacies is promoted through practice-led enquiry and adopting the mindset of the “curious musician.”

Keywords: literacies, digital literacies, practice-led enquiry, higher music education, music technology, creative practice
