Technology in my studio is used at almost each lesson, with every age of student. I use a digital piano to help students explore their pieces through different sounds, utilizing recordings on the keyboard for self-analysis, and through use of accompaniments as a metronome device to develop stable rhythm. I also have the capability in my studio to hook my digital piano to my computer, enabling students to record their performances and save them as MP3s for e-mailing or to put on their iPods or other MP3 players. Each of my students does a year round recording project, with a final CD of their performances completed at the end of the school year
On the computer and iPad, I use music theory program to enforce theory concepts, use composition programs to help students realizing the notation of their pieces, and recording software to help students record and orchestrate their pieces.
