Reviews for The Routledge Companion to Music, Technology, and Education

'Distinctive contributions are always welcomed in the literature, so it was with great pleasure that I became acquainted with this edited volume that draws together valuable insights across a range of topics related to music, technology, and education. Because it fills a much-needed gap in the literature, this comprehensive, insightful, and unique volume will be applauded by music educators internationally.'

Gary McPherson, Ormond Professor and Director, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, the University of Melbourne, Australia

'This volume is a testament to our growing understanding of technology and its role in music learning. The editors have assembled a powerful set of writings that, on the one hand provide a badly needed conceptual frame for music technology and education, and on the other provide dramatic and meaningful examples of practical usage. Voices from engineering and computer science are welcome additions. Impressive are the descriptions of progressive applications nuanced by our understanding of the social context of learning, written by some of our finest scholars.'

Peter R Webster, Scholar-in-Residence, Thornton School of Music, University of Southern California, USA
