The Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition, held at the Georgia Institute of Technology, seeks to find the world’s best new ideas in musical instrument design, engineering and musicianship. 

The School of Music mourns the loss of a great friend with the passing of Richard Guthman. Guthman, who graduated from Georgia Tech in 1956 with a degree in industrial engineering, was actively involved in public service in the Atlanta area for over 20 years.

Georgia Tech School of Music professor Jason Freeman will teach a unique online introductory music technology course through Coursera.

The Georgia Institute of Technology has been awarded a four-year, $3 million grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF) that will expand an innovative approach to computer science education in high schools across Georgia. The grant extends NSF funding of EarSketch, a project that was established in 2011 by researchers in Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture and the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. EarSketch uses musical remixes to introduce high school students – especially minorities and young women – to the world of computer programming.
