SmartMusic is Interactive Music Software

Practice with background accompaniment. Get better faster.

Launch SmartMusic. Plug in the microphone, and start practicing.

Students sing their part with background accompaniment and get instant feedback on their computer.

Why SmartMusic makes learning music fun:
  • Play songs from a huge SmartMusic library.
  • Learn how your part fits with the rest of your musical group.
  • SmartMusic listens as you play, giving you instant feedback.
  • Move at your own pace and control the tempo and key of the music.
  • Record and play back your practice sessions. Students can even send recordings of their performances to their family to demonstrate their progress.
  • Play solos and SmartMusic will listen and follow your spontaneous tempo changes.

Making Practice Fun

Never practice alone. Get instant feedback.

SmartMusic is interactive music software that helps students practice music, get better faster, and make practicing more fun. With amazing accompaniments for thousands of titles, challenging exercises, and the ability to interact online with your music teacher, SmartMusic is the future of music learning.

Get instant feedback

When you play with SmartMusic, the software follows what you’re playing and shows you on the computer screen how well you’re doing. Correctly played notes turn green. Notes you miss turn red. It’s easy to figure out where you need more practice.

Move at your own pace

Start practicing slowly until you get the hang of it, and then increase the tempo. SmartMusic puts you in control. If you already submitted the assignment your teacher gave you, you can move ahead to new songs.

Make a recording of your performance

Record yourself singing with or without your SmartMusic backup band as accompaniment. Be the star of your own CD to share with family or friends! Or send a recording to your teacher for review and grading.
