Reply To: SmartMusic in High School Band
I only use it for performance assessments never for a whole song. We do a “playing test” on all our competitive music for concert and marching band and I choose a small segment (8-16m long) for each individual instrument that is representative of the a difficult passage. i.e. flutes play mm56-58 and trombones play mm14-28 or whatever, but all get the same grade.
I also have smartmusic available and have quite a few students who use it out of class in solo prep for contests/auditions/scholarships or even just to get extra practice on the full band repertoire.
