Plus, built-in notation tools allow teachers to import, edit, and create music, producing custom content for their students.

    SmartMusic has enabled my students to engage in their own individual practice sessions in a more meaningful way! They are given a wealth of feedback and have a tremendous amount of resources just at the click of a button.

    SmartMusic has been an essential tool for motivating and guiding at-home practice for my private students, school students, and even my own kids. SmartMusic helps them focus in on the sections they need to work on while developing their practice-time discipline.

    The new SmartMusic is a fantastic time-saving tool for music teachers. Because it allows independent student learning of techniques and musical works and provides them with constructive feedback, it lets teachers get on with using group ensemble time for truly effective rehearsals.
