We have an exciting opportunity for your student that will not only help him or her substantially imrove their ability, but will also actually make practicing a lot more fun! It's called SMARTMUSIC and it's a practice and assessment software program that's currently being used in thousands of school districts across the country. We have our own subscription here at school and plan to use it extensively throughout the school year.

We recommend that you seriously consider SMARTMUSIC for home use. The cost is $40 for a one-year subscription, plus a one-time cost for the microphone ($19.95 for Windows, $29.95 for MAC). That ivestment will make a huge difference in your student's ability to meet our class goals--and it will make practicing more engaging and productive. If you have a microphone it is not necessary to order a new one.

SMARTMUSIC provides your student access to thousands of music titles, all with professional accompaniment that sounds great and helps encourage practice. The software provides immediate feedback that shows your student what they played correctly and where they need to improve. The assessment scores encourage continued practice, similar to scores in a video game. To learn more, view a short video at

We sincerely hope you choose to order a SMARTMUSIC subscription for this year. You can place your order at We've seen how well it works and how well students respond. We know it can make a huge difference in your student's ability and increase their love for making music.
