Can anyone provide input on some notable schools where one can get a graduate degree in music technology? Does anybody have a master's in this field? How is the job market?

Many thanks!

What's music tecnology?

Recording?
'Computer' music?
educational music technology?

AFAIK the University of Miami has the finest program in audio technology, but it would be a good idea to have a strong electrical engineering background along with music training for that one.

I was interested at one time in getting a graduate degree in Recording technology. (I studied recording tecnology in an Associate program at IU). By this time IU probably has a graduate degree in recording technology. When I was there, Jack Wilkins (he teaches somewhere in Florida now) was a grad student, and he had recording technology as a cognate field.

There are several universities that have grad programs in educational technology, which of course would include multimedia presentation.

There's plenty out there. Just find a place with a good fit.

University of Michigan has a really great Music Technology program, but they call it Performing Arts Technology.

The Master's Degree is an M.A. in Media Arts. It's a pretty cool, open-minded program, and you can sort of go where you want with it. I definitely recommend checking it out.

I got into both the Media Arts and Saxophone Performance master's programs this last year, but I am going to France on a Fulbright for next year. I'll probably be reapplying for both next year.

Oh yeah... their facilities are absolutely top notch. Go and audition and go on the technology tour, and be blown away.
