The older generation of music students and music teachers grew up relying mostly on books and, probably, some personal experiences or stories told to them. Teachers then have less resources to facilitate their teachings.

We are thus lucky these days to have so many available resources in our hands. Fundamentally, it is the technological advances that laid the foundations to these changes. It made gathering musical information and data, as well as sharing them, a lot more efficient.

Books on music, whether they are on its theories and principles or its applications, have been easier to furnish. Titles range from history of music, famous musicians and composers, composing music and can be as specific as jazz music, orchestra or even modern styles.

There are also modern gadgets that can have practical uses in music teaching. Digital recorders, music players and digital simulators of musical instruments are but some devices that can be useful for music teachers in training their students. They may even be useful for teachers when they themselves need to practice their craft.

The internet provides a wide selection of resources for musical teachers. There exist many websites that are especially established for music teachers or for musical education in general. The possibility is now greater that any information on a particular musical subject is only a click away!

It is also through the internet that music teachers from different places in the world converge. Through this portal, they can impart among themselves their own techniques and share their own experiences in teaching music.

Teachers and students can now also communicate more efficiently. Internet access for both allows them to easily discuss pertinent and urgent issues online when they cannot meet up personally. Assignments can also be distributed by the music teachers to all his or her students in a flash. Students, for their part, can just submit their finished works thru the internet.

Some websites offer internet accounts and even personalized websites for each teacher or music studio. This can be a venue for both the music teacher’s and his or her students’ works to be posted. Their musical works can then be viewed by anybody who has musical interests.

Nowadays, any kind of music can also be accessed and even downloaded from the internet. Music teachers would then have an abundance of music or songs to help them teach. Teaching music, anyway, needs practical applications and not just lectures.

Teachers and students also can work together in a project by using the different resources available. There are software that enable anyone to compose their own songs or music. One can never foretell, maybe one of these collaborations will even become famous!

So, aside from making things easier for music teachers, these modern resources can foster a deeper relationship and cooperation between teachers and students. Teachers will seem more approachable. Join these with the personal interactions between them, and we have a perfect combination exemplifying musical education at its best!
