Created by Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, the Keeping Score website forms the online component of an ambitious, wide-ranging music history pedagogy initiative. This project includes several PBS documentaries, radio programs, and lesson plans for a variety of grade levels. Designed for use by high school and college music history students, the website includes dozens of applications that allow the user to explore composer biographies and individual classical pieces. The learning tools have a variety of interactive features, such as map pop-ups, timelines, score excerpts, and embedded audio clips. This approach reflects the project’s goal of presenting music history in a manner that is accessible to the general public.
