This paper presents a project called i-Maestro (www.i-maestro.org) which develops interactive multimedia environments for technology enhanced music education. Guided by an analysis of pedagogical needs, the project develops enabling technologies to support music performance and theory training, including tools based on augmented instruments, gesture analysis, audio analysis and processing, score following, symbolic music representation, cooperative support and exercise generation for tuition, selflearning, and collaborative work scenarios. This paper briefly describes the context and background of the project, together with an overview of the framework and a number of different tools to support technology-enhanced music learning and teaching.
