This paper describes research focusing on the teaching of synthesizer as a musical instrument. The teaching of synthesizer performance in Australian schools is in its infancy but expanding. There is a need to promote excellence and encourage comprehensiveness in this fledgling area. The research reported here used a case study approach to establish initial guidance in the hope that synthesizer performance may grow strongly and contribute constructively to the overall fabric of music education activities in Australia. In particular it identifies areas of study which should be included in a synthesizer curriculum and highights teaching and learning methods which seem to be effective. The paper concludes by addressing the institutional responsibilities, including resource and environment considerations, which support the teaching of synthesizer.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
