The high-tech educational environment requires searching for new approaches and fundamentally new systems of education. At present, the innovative systems in music pedagogy are closely connected with using music computer technologies (MCT) - an effective contemporary means of improving the quality of teaching music at all levels of the educational process. It should also be noted that the MCT is an indispensable tool of the educational process in the promotion of musical art among various social groups, as well as a unique technology for the implementation of an inclusive pedagogical process in the training of people with disabilities. The author emphasizes the need to change the content of music education associated with the use of digital educational resources and the formation of a new type of specialist i. e. T-shaped professional. The author considers the MCT and network technologies as a means of forming the competence of contemporary musicians in the field of information technology. Some researchers identify specialists in the field of MCT as T-shaped specialists that are specialists of a new generation with deep knowledge in their core area and additional knowledge in related fields. This paper outlines aspects of the approach in modern education that prepare the students to be T-shaped professionals in contemporary education with using MCT.
