in the Music Classroom


It seems like only yesterday that Artificial Intelligence (AI) was a science-fiction concept. 

But it’s here and already a part of our daily lives.

AI technology can already compose, generate, and enhance musical content. From AI mastering services like LANDR, to complete artist voice cloning services, its uses in the music industry have reached far and wide.

Join MusicEDU’s CEO Kate Hargreaves and Curriculum Specialist John Hodder as they explore the pros and cons of AI and discuss the big topics: the ethics, academic integrity and copyright concerns around Generative AI for assessment.  

Kate and John are joined by Music Educator Peter Orenstein – Co-Director of Gig Based Learning and Hot Potato Band’s Baritone Saxophonist. Together, they examine the possibilities of AI as a powerful classroom tool and what it means for the future or teaching.
