I’m very pleased to be taking over as music technology editor for Music Education UK, the national music education hub. As editor I’m intending to make the focus of the section Mainstreaming Music Technology. It’s time for the music education community to come to grips with the fact that technology isn’t a fringe subject, it’s at the heart of most music making today.

Since the editorial focus will be advocating for inclusion of music technology throughout music education, the content will be intended to help educators do just that. We’ll be looking at cost-effective, time-efficient, real-world ways that technology can be a part of music classes. We’ll be talking to educators who are making the move and experts who can help you in planning and implementation.

Even though the audience is the UK music education community, there’s something for everyone and I hope you’ll check us out and join in the discussion
