This paper describes the background, potential use, and obstacles to the integration of information technology (IT) in the Hong Kong primary music curriculum. Based upon experience in the other countries, music curriculum has been examined to explore opportunities for integrating technology. Areas appropriate for integration were then identified with specific reference to the music curriculum in practice, context and current status of music education in Hong Kong. Examples of technology-based music instruction were discussed, and obstacles to its implementation were analysed, providing reference for further investigation. Copyright © 1999 IOS Press.
