"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
"Bauer offers music educators - across all career stages - a tailored and informed approach to enhance music learning through thoughtful integration of technology." -- Music Education Research

I have used this text in teaching a graduate course on technology in music education. My students really enjoyed the text and they found that it helped them to deeply transform their teaching.
The text is well-rounded and has several strengths:
1. The number of real world examples and ideas for teachers is excellent. Several chapters have in-depth application sections that talk about activities and describe possible technologies to use in support of these activities (for example, the chapter on creating music lists 10 activities for improvising and 12 activities for composing). These are solid, real-world examples that teachers can use with their students.
2. The text provides one of the richest connections to research literature I have seen. This includes not only research into technology and music education, but constant connections and grounding in the best music education research.
3. The overall book is organized around the framework of pedagogic content knowledge (specifically technological pedagogic content knowledge, or TPACK). My students found the TPACK framework to be easy to understand, and they also felt that it helped keep technology in its place as a support for music learning rather than focusing on technology.
In sum, Dr. Bauer's enthusiasm about technology in support of the broader goals of a rich music education makes for a readable and helpful book that is an outstanding contribution to music education.
