Teaching Music with Reason
Propellerhead Software's entry-level classroom package that focuses on learning about and making music using technology - Teaching Music with Reason - now available as a free downloadable package.
Propellerhead Software has decided to discontinue Teaching Music with Reason. This means that the product will not be updated to reflect the changes made in Reason version 4. As a consequence, the existing Teaching Music with Reason curriculum is now available to anyone as a free download through a Creative Commons license, for educators to use in their work.
Music lessons will never be the same!
Teaching Music with Reason is a stand-alone, entry-level classroom package that focuses on learning about and making music using technology. Principally designed for use in secondary and high school music classes, the package includes material for 21 complete lessons and turns each individual classroom computer into a self-contained, easy-to-use music studio, with a realistic rack of equipment that you could expect to see in any professional studio set-up.

Please note: The Teaching Music with Reason material has not been updated to reflect the changes made in Reason version 4. You can of course continue to use the Teaching Music in your education but you need to be aware that since the text is based on an older version of Reason, some parts may need to be "massaged" by you to fit with Reason 4.
We hope this becomes a living curricula, edited and updated by educators such as you. Please feel free to download it and use all or parts of it, in original or modified form.
