In January 2014, classic SmartMusic for the iPad received School Band and Orchestra magazine’s “Best Tools for Schools” award, in the category of Best Concert Band/Orchestra Teaching Tool.
This year, new SmartMusic won the “Best Tools for Schools” award in the same category.
The award is presented at the annual winter NAMM show, where music industry leaders and manufacturers share their latest products and services with distributors and retailers from around the world.
“It was very gratifying to receive this recognition this year,” said Greg Dell’Era, MakeMusic’s VP of Product Development. “We have been steadily improving and adding features to new SmartMusic and believe that it has not only risen to the level of the classic version, but has surpassed it. Winning ‘Best Tools for Schools’ confirms our belief.”
Customers who have switched from classic to new agree:
“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!” – Justin Pierce, Assistant Professor of Instrumental Music, Oklahoma Baptist University
