Several online music courses have been developed lately by educational companies. In addition, many universities have been offering music online degree programs. Since these courses and programs are taught through distance education, many ICTs are used such as: recorded video, online software, social networks, and audio. Although audio is widely used in the online courses and degree programs that aim to teach applied music, only a few research reports have been published recently about this subject. This paper intends to clarify – through a literature review - some questions concerning this use and also aims to provide a discussion regarding the challenges and constraints of using audio in online applied music lessons. It is also hoped that the discussions made in this paper may lead to the development of research in the area of online music education as well as in the specific field of sound in learning.
