Music Uniting Schools, Youth, and Communities through Information Technologies (MUSYC-IT) is an innovative multidisciplinary program offered to Grade 5-8 students in Schools of Distance Education and small rural schools. Students conduct an oral history interview, reinterpret this as a lyric, compose a melody to that lyric using computer software in a cognitive apprenticeship model through mentoring by experts via the Internet. The paper analyses 764 emails to identify the issues involved. The findings reveal four major themes: information technologies; intersystemic development; implementation and delivery; and student learning and outcomes. Technological gliches, variability in mentors, commitment of participants, maintenance of the status quo were major issues. Most students completed their song and presented it publicly; principals, parents, and students request it be continued.
