Theory, technology and the music curriculum

Cain, Tim (2004) Theory, technology and the music curriculum British Journal of Music Education, 21, (2), pp. 215-221. (doi:10.1017/S0265051704005650).

Record type: Article


In this short article I present a case for developing a new theory of music education, arguing that advances in music technology have undermined some of the most basic conceptual frameworks we currently possess. I describe some problems that might make the development of a new theory difficult and suggest some ways in which they might be overcome. My hope is that this paper will inspire people to consider the development of such a theory.
