SmartMusic Letter

Dear Parent

I have an exciting opportunity for your student that will not only help (him/her) substantially improve (his/her) ability, but will also actually make practicing a lot more fun.

It’s called SmartMusic® and it’s a practice and assessment software program that’s currently being used in thousands of school districts across the country. I have a subscription here at school and plan to use it extensively throughout the school year.

I recommend that you seriously consider SmartMusic for home use. The cost is $36 for a one-year subscription, plus a one-time cost for the microphone ($19.95 for Windows, $29.95 for Mac). That investment will make a huge difference in your student’s ability to meet our class goals — and it will make practicing more engaging and productive.

SmartMusic provides your student access to thousands of music titles, all with professional accompaniment that sounds great and helps encourage practice. The software provides immediate feedback that shows your student what they played correctly and where they need to improve.  The assessment scores encourage continued practice, similar to scores in a video game.

I sincerely hope you choose to order a SmartMusic subscription for this year. Please send $36.00 plus $19.95 (for windows users) or $29.95 (for Mac users) which covers the cost of the subscription and the microphone. I believe it can make a significant difference in your student’s ability and increase their love for making music. Make checks or money orders payable to Rogers-Herr Middle School
