I am writing to remind you about an amazing resource all WPS students have access to at HOME!
Every instrumental student at Emerson has a Smartmusic account. This is a home practice system that is essentially like having your very own music teacher in your home!
Smartmusic allows students to:
-Practice all of their book songs
-Practice assignments I send them
-Play with "background music"
-Send me songs so I can email them about their progress!
-Find NEW songs (there is an extensive music library FREE for the students to try out any song they would like to play)
-Click a note for reminders on how to play them and what they sound like.
The list goes on....
How do you log on?
All students have logged into smartmusic at school.
Please bookmark the website: home.smartmusic.com
Username: firstname.lastname@example.org (Their school emails)
Please check students emails for their passwords.
When using Smartmusic:
- If your music looks funny check to make sure you are in the correct instrument.
- If you need to leave a page for any reason click "SMARTMUSIC" at the top left of the screen.
- Practice smartmusic at home in a quiet place- the microphone in your computer or Ipad will pick up anything in the room as you are playing and mark extra sounds as “incorrect”.
- Smartmusic works best on GOOGLE CHROME (Download chrome free here: https://www.google.com/chrome/) or using the ipad app (if the ipad is at least 2014 or newer)
Please email me if you have any questions.
