Abstract and Keywords

The implementation of technology may present challenges to music educators. These challenges include varying levels of teacher confidence with technology and aspects of creative processes such as student exploration; teacher conceptions of when music happens, risk, and failure; and school curricula. This chapter provides examples of these challenges from a music teacher’s perspective. One of the questions from my own practice is in what ways could students be makers, tinkerers, or engineers in the music classroom? I identify three principles that guide my own implementation of technology in a creativity-driven music classroom. These principles are not unique to teaching music with technology, and could underlie all music-making experiences for children.

Keywords: music education, technology, creativity, risk, children, exploration, implementation, pedagogy, makers
