SmartMusic is part of something more powerful. Meet MakeMusic.

Meet MakeMusic

As we approach the 2022-23 school year, we sincerely hope you had a restful, restorative time over the summer and are looking forward to some exciting days ahead. All of us here at SmartMusic, part of MakeMusic Inc, are excited to announce some big changes coming to your app experience. In early August, when you log in to your account, you will be greeted by an improved app navigation and a new name, MakeMusic! The powerful tools that teachers, students, musicians, and creators have been using in SmartMusic now live in MakeMusic. The best part: all feature access and pricing will remain the same!

Why are we making these changes? 

Based on your feedback, we created a more intuitive navigation experience with the ultimate goal of providing quick and easy access to the tasks users need most. With the navigation on the left-hand side, you can quickly move throughout the platform. In addition, as we look towards the future, we plan to expand our suite of tools and offerings to current and new audiences. This planned expansion will encompass more than just SmartMusic and will live under the same name as our company, MakeMusic.

What to expect

As you explore the new navigation layout, you will see familiar tools like “Compose,” “Sight Reading Builder,” and “My library.” You will also continue to see “SmartMusic.”  Within MakeMusic, users can continue to create, learn, practice, and enjoy music.
