SmartMusic is an interactive music software that is transforming the way students practice. The REL Band uses SmartMusic all year round. Every student in band will be given pass off assignments on marching band music, all-region etudes, solos, scales and exercises, concert band music. Students will have either the option of using this program on one of our school computers, however, it will be more beneficial if student’s have the option of using this program at home. Since a band director or private lesson teacher can’t be there with them while they practice at home, SmartMusic provides the guidance to help them practice more effectively. This software gives students access to thousands of pieces of music. In many cases, they can select a piece of music and actually see it on-screen. Then instead of practicing alone, students click the “start” button and play or sing along with background accompaniment. They actually hear how their part fits within the whole ensemble. If they are playing a piece that appears on-screen, they get instant feedback. The notes show up green and red, telling them which notes they got right or wrong. And, students can slow down a piece at first and then gradually increase their speed as their skill grows. For more information, visit http://www.relband.org/resources/smartmusic/...Read More
