Abstract and Keywords

This chapter rehearses the possibility of drawing parallels between trends in music education globally and known behaviors (or even conditions) such as romanticism and narcissism. The chapter attempts to view technology’s role under this novel “lens.” Finally, the chapter argues that technology is often viewed as a tool or sets of tools that are being used not particularly creatively in order to “enable,” “facilitate,” or “enhance” curricular aims and objectives that might have remained unchanged for over a century, a view that might be counterproductive. The chapter suggests that it is through technology that a new “music education” can be envisaged, celebrated, and experienced.

Keywords: narcissism, romanticism, parochial practice, role of technology, epistemology
