Incorporating Technology in Teaching Musical Instruments
Prodan, Angelica
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2017 n2 2017
After discussing some of the drawbacks of using Skype for long distance music lessons, Angelica Prodan describes three different types of Artificial Reality (Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed or Merged Reality). She goes on to describe the beneficial applications of technology, with results otherwise impossible to achieve in areas such as commerce, sports, geography, and musical arts. Prodan believes in and welcomes the fact that technology can offer tremendous help with various learning styles, and will become more and more part of life, from the information available, to being able to connect anywhere in the world; but it will never replace one on one time together. She concludes that for the future she believes piano or other instruments will continue to be taught by using technology in ways that are continually improving, in parallel with the traditional way, with students and teachers benefitting from the best of both worlds, resulting in higher quality of experience and outcome for all.
