A conservatorium sans frontiers? Opportunities and threats to music education in the digital age

It is becoming increasingly acknowledged that the advent of ‘Web 2.0’, that is, the development of interactive websites that exploit the potential of the internet to transmit rich media effectively on line and encourage reciprocity between end users, has made the possibility of at least partially replicating, supplementing, or even replacing some of the traditional modes of music education with on-line delivery.  Is this development something to be celebrated and exploited, or, in fact, should we be worried?
