Chapter 4

Performing Music

Grounded in the research and best practice literature, chapter 4 discusses concepts and skills, pedagogies, and technology related to musical performance. Technologies may be of assistance in learning psychomotor knowledge and skills, and in accomplishing effective musical practice.  Models of exemplary performances and performers, along with feedback on performance may also be augmented through technology.  The aural and visual skills necessary to read and write music with fluency, and the identification and selection of musical literature can be enhanced via technology.  Technology can assist with traditional ensemble rehearsals and new technologies are creating new performance opportunities, even for people without a formal musical background.  Technology facilitated learning in music performance classrooms has the potential to benefit both teachers and their students, and to allow more individuals to experience the joy and benefits of active musical participation through performance.
