Welcome! This website is designed to keep everyone up-to-date with my latest projects. I’m currently a Music Teaching & Learning PhD student at Eastman School of Music. I’m researching how music technology is implemented in music classrooms. Feel free to browse around to view past projects I’ve worked on.
SmartMusic is a guided practice tool that can instantly assess rhythm and pitch accuracy on student performances. The purpose of this literature review is to examine the latest research on SmartMusic and its effects on students’ learning. The research focused on how teachers and students used the assessment feature. Four different themes emerged: 1. Integrating into the curriculum; 2. Practice and motivation tool; 3. Student assessment; and 4. The learning curve.
