Success! The SmartMusic Advocates

Music educators across America have seen their students improve through the use SmartMusic.

It’s one thing for us to make that claim; it’s another thing to hear it from these teachers themselves. The SmartMusic Advocates web page lets you read success stories from educators near you. Here are a few examples:

“SmartMusic allows me to assess my students more frequently so that I can give more specific direction and feedback to all of my students. My students enjoy having more frequent feedback, and SmartMusic gives them a more enjoyable component for practicing. SmartMusic not only helps student achievement, but adds a component of fun for students, and it has even got me more interested in playing my own instrument again.”
– Kathy McIntosh, Director of Bands, Troy City Schools, Troy, Ohio

“We use SmartMusic to prepare our All-State etudes. All students use SmartMusic in the classroom to practice and pass off lines in the method books. I use a computer and projector while I teach to play Smart Music accompaniments and show the music for discussion in class.”
– Michele Gaspardo, Band Director, Woodland Middle School, Euharlee, Georgia

“The biggest impact that SmartMusic has had on my teaching is the assessable files through both the library and the projects I work on with Finale. I hold my students accountable for having their music prepared through assessment and recordings, and subsequently I have documentation to back up my results. Being a director at a small school, SmartMusic gives me a resource that allows me to hear every child on every part of their music. Students’ busy schedules don’t allow me that like they used to.”
– Stephen Henry, Music Director, Industrial High School, Vanderbilt, Texas
