This study examines the process, motivations, and conditions surrounding the creation of a high school music technology class. The process was initiated by Steve, the school's band director, who wanted to reach a broader portion of the school's population. The process was facilitated by Diana, the district's assistant superintendent, who believed in technology's ability to engage students and in the importance of the arts in education. While Steve was able to address the pre-requisite concerns of scheduling and space, Diana was able to provide monetary support through external grant funding This study confirms and clarifies that technology-based music classes are being created by individual teachers, who believe that technology provides an opportunity to reach a new population of secondary students.
