Interactive Practice Exercises
for Band 1 Students

The ONLY mobile interactive homework “book” that students use to practice.

INTRODUCING THE NEUTRON COLLECTION: A NEW SERIES OF INTERACTIVE PRACTICE EXERCISE BOOKS DESIGNED FOR TODAY’S INNOVATIVE MUSIC Teachers and Students

NEUTRON's smart grade book sets it up so that each student is automatically given only the sheet music for his or her instrument. Digitally. On mobile. Effortlessly. This is like distributing the book for each instrument while keeping everything linked together for the teacher to track in one simple view. You, the teacher, can view the full scores and the individual parts, and each student’s practice history.

Introducing the new, ultimate digital companion to any method book or band curriculum: NEUTRON.

Being a Band Director is not easy.

THE PROBLEM

Being a Band Director is not easy. You have to deal with so many different instruments; each one is so unique.

For Band, there’s no concept of an “easy song.” Even an “easy” song with only 7 bars, for a Band, is still a bear, because you need to have sheet music for each instrument. So for this one “simple” song you’ll need to make copies for each instrument, make sure they get to the appropriate student, with the right instrument, in the right chair.

Then you need to manage the master hard-copy files and make sure they are returned to the proper place in the filing cabinets. What if pieces are misfiled? Damaged? Lost? The headaches headaches increase each time you access these originals.

Digital practice can help.

THE SOLUTION

  • We’ve created a comprehensive set of exercises, etudes and melodies that are the best of the best out there.
  • You’ve seen them all. We've seen them all.
  • And know what gaps each one has, and we’ve filled the gaps and created the best of the best for you and your students.

NEUTRON exercises, melodies and etudes gradually increase in difficulty and are designed to be spread out over the course of a year: classic examples, exercises and melodies music students can practice at home to build skill and technique.

DIGITAL PRACTICE

  • No more searching, copying, distributing, collecting and filing copies: reduces effort, reduces waste.
  • Each student has his/her practice homework on virtually any Android smartphone, iPhone, iPad, or laptop.
  • PLUS the mobile app actually listens to the student practice and tells him or her if they are playing correctly or incorrectly, allowing the student to improve by him/herself, prior to the weekly private lessons and ensemble or section rehearsals.

The SMART GRADEBOOK

  • Unlike trying to manage hundreds of sheets of paper and dozens of practice books, each student only sees what they have to play, can only access the songs for their own instrument, nothing more than that.
  • Teachers have a clean “smart” gradebook: All the practice exercises are grouped. All the students are grouped. Everything is in the right place, in the right way.

How it works

NEUTRON Interactive Practice Book for Band 1 works like a exercise book full of practice examples.

You can tell your students which exercises to do, and you’ll see each of your student’s scores automatically populated on the “smart gradebook” when each of them practice. From this single “smart gradebook grid” view, you will be able to see at a glance, which students have practiced which exercises, and how well each of them are progressing.

For example, instead of telling the students to “practice Exercise X on page Y of book Z” you can simply tell them to do Exercise X in Music Prodigy. Each student, when launching Music Prodigy, will easily find Exercise X (automatically set to evaluate his/her instrument), and will automatically populate this “smart gradebook grid” view for you.

Like a book, you can choose to skip certain pages or exercises.

Unlike a book, the students will be able to receive real-time feedback while they are practicing so they can adjust in real-time. Additionally, unlike a book, Music Prodigy will gather all the practice sessions and scores from each student for you. You will no longer need to copy, distribute, or collect sheets of paper and you will not have to transfer scores manually from paper to computer.
