You are a music teacher that uses the excellent notation programs Finale or Sibelius, and you've created dozens, hundreds, even thousands of practice exercises, drills, scales, etudes, compositions and arrangements.
You know the drill every year. You print, print, print and copy, copy, copy. And year after year, student after student, wear-and-tear, misplaced backpacks, the dog-ate-the-sheet-music, et al.
You know what it takes to make sure each student gets the right part, the right chair, and you're literally shuffling papers for hours every week - thousands of pages of paper, each destined to succumb to the rigors of music student life.
Not only that. You're replenishing inkjets, replacing printers, using duct tape and Scotch tape to pull everything together.
Music Prodigy CORE automates delivering your Finale or Sibelius music curriculum, collects homework performances from each of your students and logs all of it automatically in one gradebook view.
That means that every student can carry all the music homework practice on smartphones, tablets and home computers.
Moreover, unlike ANYTHING else available, Music Prodigy CORE provides students immediate, real-time feedback while they are practicing.
Because Music Prodigy CORE listens to students practice, and tells them if they're correct or incorrect while they are playing, students can adjust in real-time and improve faster.
That means students don't need to wait until class or a private lesson to ask you the teacher to listen and evaluate. Music Prodigy CORE is always there and each student can practice and learn, and come to class better prepared.
Because Music Prodigy CORE is digital, delivered through the cloud and mobile, you can drastically reduce the time and effort it takes to print, copy, distribute, collect physical pieces of paper.
Some teachers prefer things the way they are, and that's cool with us.
Other teachers understand that technology can help kids learn faster with more enjoyment. Students are growing up with smartphones, tablets and social networks, and that's what students love to use.
If you are one that has taken the time and effort to create materials in Finale or Sibelius, Music Prodigy CORE can help you turbo-charge your material by making it come alive.
In Music Prodigy CORE, your sheet music becomes "live" and "listens" to students practice. Students see red and green colors while they are playing so they can learn in real-time and improve in real-time.
They won't need to wait to see you during the week to know if they're performing correctly or not. They can come to class better prepared.
That means your Finale and Sibelius files can do even more of the work for you. It can accompany every student's practice room and report back to you how they're doing.
I have my own curriculum in Finale or Sibelius and I want to save time and effort in distributing and collecting practice homework.
