    Sound Innovations Online Resources

    In addition to the hard copy of our band book, students will also be using the Smartmusic online app to practice and submit assignments from their method book.  This app enables students to hear each song in the book played on their instrument, allows them to adjust the tempo, and provides real time feedback on the student's playing.  Smartmusic also enabales students to quickly check any note in a song, reminds them of the correct fingerings, and provides the correct pitch for any note they click on.  Smartmusic also helps students monitor and track their practice time throughout the week, and provides awards to students who meet certain practice goals.  Please visit our Smartmusic website for more information on creating a free account and how to get started practicing with Smartmusic.
