SmartMusic is a web-based music education platform that connects teachers and students.

Teachers have access to an unrivaled library of music from which to create individualized assignments for every student. Students receive immediate feedback as they practice each assignment. Their best performances are sent back to the teacher for grading and additional guidance. Plus, built-in notation tools allow teachers to import, edit, and create music, producing custom content for their students.

Transform student practice from passive repetition to active learning with SmartMusic. Per student pricing ensures there’s a perfect plan for any class size or budget.

    The new SmartMusic provides a greater level of accessibility to my students. Anyone with a Windows computer, Mac computer, Chromebook, or iPad is able to access assignments and benefit from this valuable software. The newest addition of the Sight Reading Builder is revolutionary!

    Smartmusic has been part of my orchestra program for over 5 years. I first started using the classic version and went to the web-based once it was available. The quality of the playing tests are so much better with the web-based version than the classic. I can really hear how students are playing the assignments. The other feature that I really like with the web-based is the practice analysis. Being able to track my students usage on Smartmusic has really helped each of them individually reach their playing goals. Thank you, SmartMusic, for providing this great tool for music students and teachers.

    The new SmartMusic is much better than the older classic SmartMusic. Using the Sight Reading Builder we were able to double the number of students we had from our district in the all-state bands.
