Special issue of Journal of Music, Technology and Education
Journal of music, technology and education has dedicated a special issue to the topic of ‘Technology and digital learning in higher music performance education: Experiences, opportunities and challenges’.
How does the introduction of technology and digital leaning in higher music education affect students’ learning and teachers’ and institutions’ practices?
