In online music pedagogy, teachers try to make their lessons as fun and engaging as video games while also seeking out ways to translate the face-to-face, body-to-body interactions of traditional private lessons for a web-based, public format. One aim of this book is to show what we might learn if we recognize that these practices rub shoulders, rather than ghettoizing them by genre, format, or commercial niche. As a card-carrying ethnomusicologist, I am particularly concerned with breaking the artificial walls that have often separated music scholarship from other fields of inquiry—the walls that allow the authors of a magisterial volume on “digital performance” to note in passing that they won’t be dealing with music, because “we do not have sufficient specialist knowledge and expertise to approach a worthy analysis,” even as they acknowledge that “music was one of the first artistic fields to experiment significantly with and embrace computer technologies” (Dixon 2007:x).
