Teaching music technology can be a pastime fraught with danger, frustration and disappointment, as instructors and students battle with the myriad of interface, platform and hardware configurations. These challenges can often leave the novice user with a sense of frustration that negates the need for such technology in the music making process. My experience as a music teacher has led me to combine my interest in music technology, composition and software design, to create a customised and cost effective software solution that addresses these issues. Experimental Tools 1.0 can be used in the classroom, computer lab or in a distance education setting. It is a user-friendly environment that invites experimentation and creativity without complex manuals and overly difficult set-up configurations. This paper addresses the issues of software development and chronicles the various design stages from initial concept through to implementation into teaching environments. The paper also suggests models for future development and expansion of the software.
