SmartMusic 11 music teaching tool ships

MakeMusic has introduced SmartMusic 11, a free update to its music learning software for bands, orchestras and choirs.

This new version is easier to set-up with fewer screens, but its real advantage lies in the extended library of songs which has been extended, new method books and much better assessments than before.

Students also get automated weekly rhythm assignments and printable gradebook reports along with support for files created in Finale 2009, which makes it easier for teachers to create their own assessable SmartMusic content.
 
MakeMusic co-CEO and founder John Paulson explained at least some of the improvements were based on analysis of how students use the software to learn music: “We have visited more than 70 homes to watch students install SmartMusic and complete assignments. SmartMusic 11 reflects what we’ve learned from these visits.”
