Interactive whiteboards, including the popular SMART Board TM, are becoming a common component of classrooms. Research indicates the use of interactive whiteboard technology in the classroom enhances student engagement, improves discipline, appeals to a variety of students and learning styles, allows for easy integration of media, and improves teacher productivity. However, the use of interactive whiteboards in music classrooms is much less common and research specifically on the use of interactive whiteboards in the instrumental music classroom is limited. The purpose of this project is to examine the benefits of interactive whiteboards for students and teachers and describe how interactive whiteboard technology is currently used in instrumental music classrooms. This paper will provide rationale for the installation of interactive whiteboards in instrumental music classrooms and practical applications for instrumental music teachers incorporating interactive whiteboards in their rehearsals.
