Abstract:

In this article, the author discusses ways in which technology can be used to transform music without compromising the integrity of musical knowledge. This discussion is based on her notion that along with the numerous positive developments brought to music by technology, such as access and inclusivity, it has also contributed to a declining belief in traditional music training and the simplification of musical knowledge.
