The Child as Musician

Peter R. Webster

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews important work on musical development in terms of the possibilities and realities provided by computer-based technology. The important role that music technology plays in the lives of youth is stressed, particularly in light of new mobile apps and Internet-based software. Six scenarios that describe student musical experiences formed by using computer-based technology are presented. Musical development literature related to the experiences of creating, responding to, and performing music forms the heart of the chapter. Over 80 software titles drawn from computer, smartphone, tablet, and Internet-based sources are provided as examples of how such software and hardware have been and might be used to better understand musical development and how young people engage with music. Implications for music learning are considered along with musical development.

Keywords:   computer-based technology, music technology, mobile apps, musical development, music learning, music
