Document Thumbnail

Music is very important for today’s youth the Millennials. They often listen to music for hours every day and many also produce music by themselves. As a result young people now show different musical abilities compared with earlier generations. New software for music production, combined with the development of less expensive but more powerful computers, has made Desktop Music Production available to a large public. Producers of music production software also show a growing interest in the educational market. This raises questions about what demands this puts on the training and work of teachers in music production and audio education as well as the future challenges to suppliers of music production software and music technology.
