The Child as Musician

Peter R. Webster

Oxford University Press

What has rarely been considered is how advances in music technology might help to support practically the actual developmental understanding of music in children. This chapter reviews important aspects of musical development in terms of music perception, performance, preference, and creation, and links these to music technology. After a summary of music technology history in the last thirty years, it draws connections between the literature on musical development and music technology — particularly music software. It also offers a brief review of studies that have used technology to understand more clearly aspects of music learning. It concludes with thoughts about future directions in considering music technology and the understanding of musical development.

Keywords:   music technology, musical development, music software, music hardware, music learning
