When properly integrated into learning experiences, music technology can help improve students’musical competency. In particular, notation software instructional modules have proven to enhance the competency of would-be music educators. In this experimental study, researchers administered a peer software tutorial to Filipino pre-service music teachers in order to determine whether or not using notation software enhanced their rhythmic, melodic, or harmonic competencies. Participants who received peer instruction demonstrated significant improvement in overall musical competency after treatment, while the control group did not show significant improvement. Results of this study indicate that peer software tutorials may improve pre-service music teachers’musical competency
