Ages of learners
SmartMusic is award-winning interactive music software that provides the ideal practice environment. With a subscription to SmartMusic, students have unlimited access to the world's largest accompaniment library for all ages and skill levels, which includes thousands of pieces of music.
Students open an assignment from their teachers, which contains customized instructions for playing a particular piece of music.
- As the music appears on the screen, they play or sing along with background accompaniment.
- Following each performance, SmartMusic provides an immediate assessment, displaying the notes that students performed correctly in green and the notes they performed incorrectly in red.
- Students record and listen to each performance to hear how they really sound and how their part fits within the whole.
- When they are satisfied with their performance, they send a recording to their teacher who can assess, score, and build a portfolio to track their progress over time.
