Instructions for Purchasing SmartMusic

 

Instructions from the vendor

 

Dear Parent or Guardian:

 

Your child's director is recommending SmartMusic as a very efficient and enjoyable way to practice at home. To purchase SmartMusic:

 

- Visit www.smartmusic.com

 

- You can also choose to purchase a microphone  and other accessories. A microphone is required for recording, Intelligent Accompaniment, tuning and assessment. While most microphones (including built-in mics) will work with SmartMusic, we recommend the SmartMusic microphone because it has undergone extensive testing to ensure the best results with the program. It also has a clip (instrumental) or headset (vocal) to place the mic in the optimal position.

 

-- Start practicing! You can learn how to set-up and use SmartMusic by watching the SmartMusic QuickStart Videos. These videos can be accessed from the Help menu, the last screen of the Setup Wizard or the Welcome screen before you activate your subscription.

 

If you have any questions about how to use SmartMusic or encounter any problems, please don't hesitate to call the toll-free Technical Support line at 866-240-4041. The phones are open weekdays from 8.30am-8pm (CST). You can also submit your question online.
