New Assessable Contest Solo Repertoire Released Today

Classic Festival Solos Flute Cover FULL SIZE

Today, Classic Festival Solos, Vol. 1, which is already in the Solo library, now has an assessable counterpart with on screen notation! This means that students can have the benefit of using SmartMusic’s assessment features, especially during the learning phase. Knowing which notes and rhythms are being played correctly (and incorrectly) from the beginning makes a big difference in the learning process. After the notes and rhythms are set, students can use the non-assessable accompaniment to put on the final musical touches using the Follow Me feature.

First, here are the instruments in the collection:

After searching and finding the collection, this is what the search results look like. Notice the column named  On Screen and the green check marks. This shows the music that is on screen and assessable. To open the Follow Me solo, open the collection with no check mark in the column.

As so many teachers and students have said, being able to use the assessment feature speeds up the learning process so the musical aspects can be sooner addressed.
