Discovered whilst entering a new millennium: A technological revolution that will radically influence both music making and music education
This brief position paper considers opportunities related to music making in general and music education more specifically that are evolving as a consequence of our increasingly networked world. It calls for music education to introduce music's diversity to young learners in the knowledge that the widest variety of musical repertoire is globally available by way of the Internet. Increasingly, pedagogical tools and information are supporting online communities related to this musical diversity. It proposes, too, that aesthetics, a means of encouraging musical communication, return to musical discourse, in particular in schools.
