Skip the Assigner and Share Sight Reading Builder Exercises

Share Sight Reading

The importance of developing sight-reading skills as a musician is undeniable. With that comes the need for teachers to access endless amounts of sight-reading content that can quickly be placed in front of their students on a regular basis. Using Sight Reading Builder, MakeMusic Cloud (SmartMusic) teachers have had the ability to create infinite sight-reading exercises and distribute to students only through the assignment process—until now!

With the launch of the new Playlist sharing feature comes the ability to also share Sight Reading Builder content through a sharing link. This means that teachers can share custom sight-reading exercises as individual outlines or through Playlists—skipping the assignment process altogether. Even better, these outlines can be shared publicly, meaning students without a MakeMusic Cloud account can improve their skills by accessing free sight-reading content, generating unlimited exercises, and receiving assessment.

Try it out!
