"Thinking about technology tends to fall along two lines: technology as a means for exploring ideas in new ways and with richer depth, or technology as a field of study in its own right. Dr. Bauer has produced a resource that brings these lines together, approaching technology as a maturing discipline while bringing a depth of rigor and scholarship to the discussion that will help music teacher educators use technology in their own teaching and research. This is the rare technology text that will remain relevant for years to come, and become a seminal resource for our profession." - Mitchell Robinson, Associate Professor and Chair of Music Education, Michigan State University

"Dr. Bauer has created a comprehensive guide for how digital technology can support music teaching and learning for every level and type of music class. Thoroughly grounded in the music education and music psychology research literature, this very accessible book is an essential resource for pre-service and in-service music teachers alike." - Rick Dammers, Associate Professor of Music Education, Rowan University
