This study investigated the main issues identified by teachers in the use of information and communication technology (I&CT) in the music curriculum in Scotland. Teachers' views and opinions were elicited using a focus group methodology. Main issues emerged within the broad headings of Curriculum and Pedagogy, and Management and Infrastructure. Generally, teachers acknowledged the benefits that I&CT brings to their teaching and to the improved learning of students but remain anxious that the perceived trend toward more use of I&CT in the teaching, assessment and management of the curriculum will require major strategic planning and investment by schools and local authorities.
