Without a teacher present, it is easy to students to practice incorrectly and develop bad habits. Students are strongly encouraged to use interactive music software at home. Using this technology will help students to have productive practice sessions. It should take some of the frustration out of learning an instrument and it should make practice sessions more enjoyable.
With New SmartMusic students can:
- Play or sing with an accompaniment at home.
- Receive immediate feedback on their performances.
- Record their performances for self-assessment and instantly share their results with their teacher.
