The purpose of this chapter is to examine ways middle school band students engage in the composition process utilizing media and music technology. First, previous scholarship concerning models of compositional process in the classroom is addressed and articulated. Next, the ways technology was extensively utilized to engage the students and band directors throughout the compositional process are examined. Last, problematic issues of group composition when teaching "virtually" and how they meaningfully shaped the musical experience of the teachers and students are described.

Keywords:   music technology, group composition, middle school band, nontraditional music making
