Collaboration among teacher educators (music and non-music), school teachers, research assistants, technicians and the music industry in the development of music teaching materials and teaching designs is becoming more necessary in the digital age when computer technology is found to be of much benefit to music education. The experience of a group working together for the purpose of disseminating sampler music teaching practices and for the advancement of music education through an innovative and interactive CD-ROM is accounted for in this paper. Benefits and drawbacks encountered through the process involving this ensemble of workers are discussed. Issues concerning differences in ideologies of music educators, acquisition of the most appropriate materials for the design, technical constraints, and budget matters are included. Music educators who would attempt similar endeavours would be informed of our experience for reference to their work.
