SmartMusic Update April 2014

We want to let you know about the latest SmartMusic update that is scheduled to be released the evening of  Thursday, May 8.

What’s new

SmartMusic now updates automatically

  • You no longer need to re-download SmartMusic to install updates or a newer version. By default, SmartMusic is set up to automatically  install updates the next time you start the program.
  • If an update becomes available while you’re working with SmartMusic, an Update Available notification appears in the lower left corner of the program.


  •  If you are  unsure if the automatic update feature is on or want to turn it off, go to the help menu and select Check for Updates. From there, you will be able to choose your preference.


Look for these improvements
