Want to start a music technology program? This session will demonstrate the need-to-knows of designing a curriculum, including free resources, writing lesson plans, creating tutorials, and relating to standards. As educators, we understand how to teach music and our students certainly understand technology. Together, you can design a collaborative course where any student can create their own music.
