A Study of the Present State of Electronic Music Training, Including Computer Assisted Instruction; A Bibliography. Final Report.
Ihrke, Walter R.
A questionnaire was sent to 276 member schools of the National Association of Schools of Music to gather information about the degree and extent of electronic technology used in music instruction. From the replies four types of electronic technology were identified: electronic piano studios, electronic music studios, computer-assisted music instruction, and modular training stations. Thirty music schools were visited. Schools in which electronic activity was well known were not visited, but a bibliography of published material documents their efforts. IT was found that schools visited were not availing themselves of the opportunities offered by these new technologies. Electronic music was confined to only its own area in the curriculum and had yet to make an impact on other courses. The investigator states that sooner or later educators must design a training rationale which incorporates electronics in training and electronic music in the tradition concepts and procedures. (JY)
