We explore how the recent explosion of new digital technologies such as YouTube, Spotify and Blip.fm have transformed the teaching of music.

Augmented reality, where a layer of virtual information is overlaid onto the physical world, gives students the potential to experience learning in a completely new way. We look at what this means in practice.
