Music Technology Curriculum Integration

September 23December 15, 2019

This course is intended for elementary and secondary music educators who want to effectively integrate technology into the music curriculum. Throughout this course, participants will experience a variety of technologies including audio recording/editing, MIDI recording/editing, music notation, music theory and ear training applications, video editing, and Google applications. Participants will learn the functionality of each application and, more importantly, how to use those applications with students to enhance music instruction. Participants will develop technology-based music classroom lesson plans that can be implemented in the teacher’s classroom.

This course counts as TI:ME 2C towards a TI:ME Level 2 Certification. For more information on TI:ME certification, click
