Abstract: After briefly sketching the developments in technology and relating them to the music education landscape, the author raises three concerns pertaining to the nature of students’ musical experiences, the skills and knowledge they are acquiring, and the values inculcated. These in turn prompt the question of whether our traditional notion of “musicianship” needs to be reconsidered in the light of the technology-rich environment within which present-day musicians operate. The musical and more general profile of what has now been referred to as the iGeneration is also forcing music educators to re-look at what music education should be like. This article hopes to raise awareness as well as offer some guiding considerations as music educators wrestle with this fundamental challenge. Far from being definitive in its advocation, the idea of i-music-education is meant to provoke further thoughts and discussion amongst music educators.
