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. 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.
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.
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.
It's a digital book. It's a mobile app. It's a practice assistant. It's a smart gradebook. It's the music classroom's one and only...
