What is SmartMusic?

SmartMusic is an online learning and assessment tool for student musicians. With SmartMusic, students can: practice songs from the book, receive and complete assignments from Mr. Leedy, learn other songs from the book, receive helpful feedback from Mr. Leedy, and much more.

How does it work?

Once a student is logged in, they will start the assigned song on the program and play along with their instrument through a microphone. Once the “take” is completed, the SmartMusic will provide a score of how well they achieved the song.  That score is then inputted into Infinite Campus and is reflected in the students band grade.

Is SmartMusic free for my child?

Yes.

Do I need internet at my house for SmartMusic to work at home?

Yes.

What if my child can’t do SmartMusic at home because of a lack of internet, working computer, or other issue?

In this case, your child will complete SmartMusic during band class.

What internet browser can we use to access SmartMusic?

Google Chrome.

Is there an iPad app for SmartMusic?

Yes. You can download it here.  It’s free.

What if I don’t have Google Chrome downloaded on my computer?

You can download it here. It’s free.

What about the microphone?

Most newer tablets, surface pros, laptops and similar devices have a built-in microphone so you won’t need to purchase an external microphone.  However, desktop PC’s and older devices will require you to purchase a microphone.

You can buy a microphone directly from SmartMusic here.

Walmart has a cheaper version here.

You cannot plug a USB microphone into an iPad.

iPads have a pre-built in mic.

The microphone you buy doesn’t need to be fancy but it must be USB so that it can plugged into one of the open USB ports on your computer at home.

How does my child login to SmartMusic?

Every student already has a username and password.

If your child completed the sign up process on their own, they wrote down their username and password on a piece of paper.

If Mr. Leedy completed the sign up process for them, your username is: the first letter of your first name and your full last name (example: mleedy).  *Some students will have the number 1 at the end of their last name. 

Your child’s password is Bulldogs1.

When you login the first time, change your password!

Your child will input their school email and password here.  It is also on the front page of bisband.org.

So, what does my child need for SmartMusic again?

  • computer or iPad
  • Google Chrome or the app
  • internet access
  • a USB microphone if one is not already built-in to the device you are using
  • to remember their SmartMusic username and password that they created
