SmartMusic Update October 2015

SmartMusic Carousel

Today we released an exciting SmartMusic update. Upon launching SmartMusic you’ll now see an updated carousel on the home page (pictured above). Not only does it include new content, the carousel now rotates, placing more playing options at your students’ fingertips.

In this same vein we’ve also added additional genres below the carousel, including Spooky, Holiday, TV and Toons, Latin Feel, Spiritual, and Romantic.

As mentioned yesterday, we’re delighted to have added some keyboard repertoire to SmartMusic. These titles are designed for use with a MIDI keyboard. Included are several solo collections including baroque, classical, romantic, and jazz repertoire, as well as three collections by Lorie Line.

Speaking of jazz, five books of Gordon Goodwin solos, for trumpet, alto and soprano sax, tenor sax, trombone, and drums were also added. These titles include stunning solo transcriptions from Gordon’s Big Phat Band, and accompaniment controls that let you choose to hear the soloist or not, making it possible for every student to improvise along  with Gordon’s incredible group.

Again, the goal of these updates is make all SmartMusic repertoire more discover-able for your students.
