It is HIGHLY encouraged that each Concert Band student purchase a Smartmusic subscription on their home computer. First and foremost, Smartmusic is the most innovative personal practice tool ever created. Secondly, Concert Band will have numerous assignments that will need to be submitted through Smartmusic. Students may submit these assignments using the school's practice room subscriptions. However, it is quicker and easier to complete and submit these assignments at home. Furthermore, those students who will be participating in solo/ensemble contest will find Smartmusic to be an indispensable tool in their preparation.
