Teaching Music from a Distance
Criswell, Chad
Teaching Music, v16 n4 p26 Jan 2009
Imagine being able to teach a music class live over the Internet. Actually, one does not have to imagine it. Advances in technology over the past few years have now made it possible to teach almost any class in a virtual environment. Building on the success that colleges and universities have had with moving graduate music education courses onto the Web, a few ingenious educators are taking the next logical step and offering real-time music lessons online. For some students in remote areas, or in schools where no music program currently exists, the potential benefits of these new developments are great. In this article, the author discusses the potential benefits of internet-based music instruction as well as the technical considerations that can limit its success.
