“Robert Winter’s masterful and profoundly original MITA represents the first thorough rethinking in music pedagogy in many decades. It will set the standard for a very long time into the future.”

Music in the Air (MITA) is the first wholly integrated, all-digital music teaching platform ever to hit the higher ed market. Overflowing with the sounds of music played and sung by world-class performers, MITA is ideally suited for introductory and music appreciation courses.

Unify Course Resources

Gone are the days when teachers and students had to schlep a separate textbook, listening resources, and possibly a score anthology to class. With MITA, all that and more is offered under one roof: world-class recordings, a joyful and authoritative historical narrative, our signature Interactive Scores, original video content, and expandable images. MITA, a robust Mac/Windows application, also serves as a home base for excursions to the web, with curated, annotated links to web resources added to the mix.

Bridge the Gap Between History, Theory, and Performance

MITA acts upon the growing consensus of the college music community: music history and theory feed on one another. For that reason, every mention of a musical concept like rhythm or dominant seventh chord is hotlinked to an in-depth glossary essay on the topic. Glossary entries are saturated with musical examples and link back to the historical narratives of those works.

Bring It All Together

We’re passionate about providing educators with content that is deep but highly accessible. That’s why we’ve rolled out Pathways. Pathways offer guided threads through MITA’s rich resources that range from complete course syllabi to traditional genres (operas and musicals, chamber music, jazz, etc.), from extensive and entertaining introductions to musical instruments to the many crucial roles played historically by women.
