smartmusic features

SmartMusic is the leading browser-based music education platform that connects teachers and students from the cloud to the classroom. It facilitates focused practice, assessment, and immediate feedback, making the link between educator and student even more powerful.

SmartMusic’s Practice App facilitates immediate feedback on students’ individual performances through an algorithmic assessment of note pitch, rhythm, and duration. Students will simultaneously receive contextual reference from professionally-recorded accompaniments. The built-in metronome, tuner, looping tools, and fingerings are all available to aid student progress.
