Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 1192)


Music Learning online has been promoted the last decades as an Interactive methodology with considerable outcomes, in terms of efficiency, effectiveness and attainment of popularity. However, a situation where no noticeable progress would be inferred as accredited benefit of massive learning was reported a decade ago. The advent of mobile computing communication proved a forceful exertion to situated learning in music having the power to influence the acquisition of music knowledge and skills. The case of a novel Byzantine Music learning protocol is examined for its potential to achieve relatively a big “crop” from rather limited in extend lessons but with the capacity to have a significant effect on the context of musical instruction.
