This is a great resource for a lot of people. Whethr you are a music teacher looking to enhance your music teachning with some technology, or you are a professor wanting a textbook for a music technology class you are teaching, this book has something worth-while. David B. Williams and Peter R. Webster are veterans in the field with many years' experience.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on February 1, 2002
Format: Paperback
I expected a careful, general overview of the various uses of technology in music. This book is clearly for a classroom that uses Macs and the specific software indicated. There is not one entry for Finale, nor microphone/recording techniques. The book is pretentious in its organization (academic music ed. types) and woefully lacking in providing the required general overview of concepts, and prefers to teach specific software applications, many of which are not mainstream.

Format: Paperback
Not exactly the greatest book I've ever owned...the computer background information is woeful (I found 3 glaring mistakes in 70 pages of material by just skimming). The book has generally good information on the software it covers and a pretty good intro to MIDI.

Format: Paperback
My Music Technology class used this for last semester. It has a broad overview of the technology of Music Engineering ranging from MIDI to running the Macintosh OS. One of the best things about it is the fact that it uses mostly simple language to explain the topics it covers. Any Music Tech. student would be advised to purchase this book. Many Music Ed. majors I know also use this book. It covers how to utilize computer software in Music Theory classes and composing classes.

I am a student of Dr. Williams, author, and I think that this book is amazing. It's probably the easiest reading textbook I have ever had. I don't get bored when I read this book like I do other text books. This is a must have for music tech students!!
