In this course students are introduced to the important role that technology plays in enhancing and supporting music education in the 21st Century. Students will develop an understanding of various learning activities that use technology to develop musical understanding and skills, both in individual instrumental tuition and in the classroom context. The question of how to integrate the use of technology with more traditional forms of music education will also be explored. The role of jazz, pop music and world music in music education will then be investigated, with students deepening their knowledge of each of these genres of music. Students develop an understanding of the traditions, ethical considerations, stylistic practice and historical context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music. Students will develop their understanding of song writing in an educational context, both by studying examples of best practice and through engaging in practical song writing themselves. Through this subject students will broaden their skill sets as 21st Century music educators as well as develop a folio of professional level resource materials and learning activities.
