Redefining "Music Technology"
Why do we limit the study of technology in collegiate music programs to recording or composing electronic music?
Musicians have so much more use for technology than only that.
Let’s redefine “Music Technology” as a subject that relates to technology used by musicians.
Musicians use videos, websites, RSS feeds, podcasts, social media, and blogs. Can’t we teach that stuff to them?
Wait, you can teach videography in a music class?, you’re wondering.
You can and you should. Research shows that out of all videos adults are watching online, music videos are one of the top hits.
Let’s revolutionize how we approach Music Technology in our coursework.
