The purpose of the conference is to share information concerning current applications of technology in music learning. The conference will be of interest to music educators involved in K-12, private studio, or college teaching, music psychologists, music theorists, composers, and musicologists; as well as students preparing for any of these professions. Once again, the final day of the conference will feature a closing session in which all participants will collaborate in an effort to design strategies for integrating technology in music learning. This session will build upon ideas offered in "think-tank" sessions from previous years for the purpose of outlining both short-term and long-term goals for integrating technology into the music curriculum as a means of facilitating instructor capabilities and to improve the educational experience for students. Plan to attend the opening night reception on January 27th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The Host The Institute for Music Research promotes research in music technology and music psychology by conducting research, hosting conferences, providing online services, and publishing print and media.
