When working up new repertoire, Dan assigns each student one of the more challenging and/or important sections via SmartMusic. When students practice this material at home with immediate feedback, they prepare notes and rhythms more quickly. What’s more, Dan also encourages students to listen to the recording of the professional ensemble that accompanies their assignments to get a sense of phrasing, shaping, dynamics, and more.
In previous videos, Dan talks about the new mixing tools, what’s working well for his students in the new SmartMusic, ways he uses it in the band room, and how using a tuner is like using a pencil sharpener. Really.
Music educators can use the new SmartMusic for just $39.99/year. Students can use SmartMusic at home for as little as $13.99/year. Best of all, you can try it for free.
