Abstract and Keywords

This chapter, drawing on the author’s background as a professional performing musician, recording studio owner, record producer, recording engineer, software programmer, and music teacher in Australia, discusses the dichotomy between the ubiquity of music technology in the music world and technology’s relative paucity in the school curriculum. He goes on to discuss how music educators should remain aware of global music trends, specifically how the democratization of technology has decimated the barriers to making music resulting in greatly expanded opportunities for individuals to create and publish, contrasted however by the prevalence of copy-and-paste music making. Ultimately, the chapter presents a taxonomy (imitation, emulation, inspiration, origination) for understanding how technology can be deployed in musically generative ways.

Keywords: higher education, educational technologies, administrative technologies, social technologies, teacher training
