    Aims The aim of this study is to examine how technology is utilized in music teaching on a primary school level. Basic education curriculum 2014 emphasizes the use of information and communication technology in teaching and learning. Utilizing technology in teaching has become more common in primary schools which makes this study is very topical. I aim to support my study with the theories of blended learning and constructivism as a learning process. As technology becomes more common it offers many new ways to teach music, but does the present day teachers has the means and knowledge to really utilize the possibilities this technology may offer in teaching? Methods In this qualitative study my method of study was theory based content analysis, in which interviewing eight primary school teachers from Helsinki provided the data of the study. Five of the interviewees were class teachers and three were a subject teacher in music. The data was supported by the theories of blended learning and constructivism as a learning process. The data was also compared to the basic education curriculum 2014 on the subject of music missions, goals and contents in the grades 3–6. In this study comparing the data from the interviews to the base theories concluded the results. Results and conclusions The results of this study showed that utilizing technology in teaching music has offered the teachers a new kind of way to teach music in primary schools. This teaching method has provided positive learning experiences for the students and also for the teachers. It has also motivated the students to learn music. Schools resources, teachers own knowledge, lack of study material and training on the subject affect on how technology is ultimately utilized in teaching.
