By using the features listed above, students using SmartMusic at home are now ALWAYS: tuning with a digital tuner, playing with a pitch and rhythmic reference, hearing the quality of professional recordings as the model sound, slowing the tempo and looping difficult sections, and understanding how their part fits within the ensemble even before the piece is played in class, . These are all the things you train them to do anyways! SmartMusic simply ensures these habits are happening outside of the classroom.

But, what if they run into a problem like forgetting a fingering for a new piece, scale, solo, or exercise. Simply click any note on screen to display a fingering chart. A situation that may have been a showstopper for your students previously is now a learning experience that takes their playing to the next level. This new fingering can easily be worked out in a matter of minutes by lowering the tempo and turning on the loop feature!

Fingering charts are just another way to keep your students engaged in a practice session, letting them move at their own pace, and making them more accountable for their achievement as a musician.
