Savoring the Artistic Experience in an Age of Commodification

The ideas of savoring, commodification and learning within a multi-media, multi-arts environment are brought forth as food for thought for music educators working towards engaging learners in the technological space of music: i) Savoring with attention to the development of aesthetic experiences by critically scaffolding and facilitating musical activities for digital learners and engaging them musically amidst their growing hunger of technological music commodities; ii) Attention to popular music and glocalized representations and being cognizant of marginalized musical cultural voices because of the proliferation of commodified musics; and iii) Provision for multi-media and multi-arts experiences and activities within the music classroom.
