“The new SmartMusic provides a greater level of accessibility to my students. Anyone with a Windows computer, Mac computer, or iPad is able to access assignments and benefit from this valuable software. The newest addition of the Sight Reading Builder is revolutionary!”

Assistant Professor in Instrumental Music // Oklahoma Baptist University

“Smartmusic has been part of my orchestra program for over 5 years. I first started using the classic version and went to the web-based once it was available. The quality of the playing tests are so much better with the web-based version than the classic. I can really hear how students are playing the assignments. The other feature that I really like with the web-based is the practice analysis. Being able to track my students usage on Smartmusic has really helped each of them individually reach their playing goals. Thank you, SmartMusic, for providing this great tool for music students and teachers.”

“The new SmartMusic is much better than the older classic SmartMusic. Using the Sight Reading Builder we were able to double the number of students we had from our district in the all-state bands.”

“SmartMusic has been an essential tool for motivating and guiding at-home practice for my private students, school students, and even my own kids. With count-offs and practice loop capabilities, SmartMusic helps them focus in on the sections they need to work on while developing their practice-time discipline.”

“What’s worked really well in the new SmartMusic for us has been the accessibility. To have kids be able to come down at any time to work on their assignments, to be able to take their Chromebooks in, to be able to use an iPad, the kids having access to the software on anything has been such a huge help to get them to be more engaged and involved.”

“The new SmartMusic is a fantastic time-saving tool for music teachers. Because it allows independent student learning of techniques and musical works and provides them with constructive feedback, it lets teachers get on with using group ensemble time for truly effective rehearsals. The customisable assessment options also allow teachers to streamline their grading process and increase productivity.”
