Abstract: The purpose of this project was to gauge a music population’s awareness of music tools or applications on handhelds which could be useful for music education, and also to gauge what kind of instructive information about the use of such tools or applications could be useful for this group. A questionnaire for volunteer participants was employed. Also some participants were interviewed. After that, a needs assessment was constructed to investigate the participants’ needs. The study found that approximately 52 % of the participants responded that they had heard about such music tools or programs on handhelds which could be useful for music education, and about 29 % of the participants responded that they had used such tools or programs. About 76% of the participants were positive in responding that they thought music related tools or programs on handhelds helped them learn music.
