Advances in video
conferencing technology have made it possible to
communicate with people all over the world. With the
introduction of HD Video and better than CD quality
audio, teaching and performing music over the Internet
is now a reality. The purpose of the symposium is to
identify and develop strategies to establish synchronous
distance learning as a viable means of teaching music to
anyone in the world.

primary sites--Manhattan School of Music (New York),
Peabody Institute (Baltimore), Royal College of Music

The conference will be webcast in real-time. In
addition, selected papers and multimedia presentations
will be featured on the symposium website.
