The article discusses the possibility of introducing musical-theoretical disciplines into the educational process, such as “Listening to Music,” “Solfeggio,” “Elementary Theory of Music,” and “Harmony” in music colleges and universities of new instruments related to the smart education technology segment. This toolkit (computer programs for recording compositions or fragments, musical editing, digital musical instruments—electronic pianos, synthesizers, samplers, workstations, multimedia computers, computer programs, audio-MIDI sequencers, VST-instruments, audio editing/editing programs, etc.) is used in musical improvisation and composing music by students. For teachers who use this toolkit, this allows to overcome the performing orientation of training in music colleges and universities that is characteristic of Russian music education today, since students in the process of composing music find their own methods of self-expression, carry out creative self-realization; optimize and intensify the process of musical creativity. In a related move, students successfully master the means of musical expressiveness and comprehend the nature of music, and their musical thinking is activated. The effectiveness of introducing smart education technologies in the educational process of such disciplines as musical-theoretical course in music colleges and universities is confirmed by a qualitative and quantitative analysis of experimental work data using the capabilities of the statistical analysis apparatus (Pearson criterion).
