SmartMusic’s revolutionary assessment feature gives students feedback on their performance so improvement can be made between rehearsals or lessons. As a student performs an exercise or piece, SmartMusic’s assessment feature displays the notes played. Correctly executed notes appear in green; red notes indicate an incorrect pitch or rhythm. This instant feedback gives students the information needed to improve at their own pace, which is often times faster than the group.
SmartMusic even grades the assessment based upon the percentage of correct (green) notes. This motivates students to keep practicing and earn the highest score possible. Students complete assignments from their teacher by using SmartMusic at home. They choose which performance score is submitted to their teacher, along with an assessment screenshot and recording. This process puts achievement in the student’s hands, and can produce dramatic improvement in a short period of time.
