getting started

Creating an account and getting started with SmartMusic is simple! Your student will need a valid email address, as well as a Class Code from their teacher.

  1. Be sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome, or the latest version of the SmartMusic iPad app.
  2. Go to or open the SmartMusic app on your iPad and select “Join A Class.”
  3. Enter a valid email and Class Code.
  4. Follow the prompts to create your account. Be sure to enter a backup email when prompted so that you can easily recover your student’s password if necessary.

completing an assignment

Once your student has created an account and connected to a class, they will be able to complete assignments sent by their teacher. Students should:

  1. Set up a high-quality recording environment that is quiet and has room to perform.
  2. Open the assignment from the “Pending Assignments” deck on the Home page and read the instructions.
  3. Select the record button and follow the on-screen instructions. Calibrate the microphone, making sure to unplug your headphones and turn up your computer speakers so that your microphone can hear the test tone.
  4. Record. You can record multiple takes and review them under “My Takes.”
  5. Review. Students can also send a comment to their teacher with the recording and assessment.
