Using ICT in Music Education
Music is central to our experience as human beings and forms the basis of our sonic environment, allowing for expression and communication across styles and cultures. Musical experiences enrich our lives. There is no doubt that technology has become more and more important in education all over the world. And there are still many exciting developments in the area of music technology that only can be anticipated at the moment.
ICT provides the means to access a wide variety of sources of information and provides the opportunity for investigation of the creation of music at various stages, right up to the appreciation of the performance. It provides access to musical experiences from a range of cultures and time periods. This serves to encourage citizenship and the exploration of sameness, difference and diversity.
Studying music develops understanding, skills and values that enhance our cognitive, affective and psycho motor abilities and enhance our perception of the world around us. Trainees learn about the symbols used to represent sound and develop a deeper understanding of music making and appreciation. Through performing, listening and composing they develop their imagination and aesthetic sensibility and engage intellectually in the study of music.
It is essential that students are empowered to take leadership and responsibility in fostering positive and inclusive virtual environments. On the other hand one of our aim is to get the target groups aware of how little impact it sometimes needs to get a great outcome, no matter what cultural background or social state you are in – you can give as much as you can and you get back something which makes you richer in mind and enriches your knowledge, no matter who you are. We want to enhance the quality and reinforce the European dimension in adult education. We would like to motivate our trainees to learn languages, use ICT and enrich knowledge about the variety of European culture.
Studies in Music Education show that:
– Through technological applications in music training music classes become more interesting for individuals
– More efficient and effective learning can be achieved
It is observed that with active participation individuals have more fun from music. In the light of this information, through the SW programs that will be used in this project, the notes and lyrics can be monitored in their duration, loudness and musical expressions. All this will be presented to students and teachers in an accurate and understandable way. The compositions on paper will be played with their melodies so will provide great convenience for people who do not know music.
