Christopher Cayari is an assistant professor of music education at Purdue University. He teaches college students, mostly pre-service teachers, but his research considers how musicians use technology, particularly the internet and social media, to make music. Just as YouTube is changing how music is created and shared, Cayari is using YouTube and other video tools to change how his students learn about music. He uses technology to turn his classroom into a learning community, where students learn from and with each other.
