his paper presents current developments taking place in the context of the MusiCoLab project. MusiCoLab aims at delivering a comprehensive and efficient web platform for music learning and teaching, by building on prior research experience of project partners, as well as by investigating the integration of state-of-the-art tools in intelligent music composition, performance, and discovery within an educational context. Compared to existing relevant initiatives, MusiCoLab offers a suite of innovative tools that may be used to enhance collaboration and engagement in networked/virtual settings. These tools are sought both in the context of asynchronous student/teacher interactions (i.e., course preparation and scheduling, student assignments and self-practice) as well as synchronously, i.e., serving as groupware to facilitate live music lessons by manipulating intelligent collaborative digital artifacts.
