After your organization has purchased SmartMusic, the designated SmartMusic Administrator for your organization will invite you to connect to SmartMusic as a teacher.
Step 1: open the email invite.
The invite is sent to the email address that your Administrator provides. If you know your Administrator already sent you an invite to the right email address and you do not receive an email, check your junk mail folder and make sure that *@makemusic.com and *@smartmusic.com are added to your email account's safe list, then ask your Administrator to resend it.
Open the Connect to your SmartMusic organization as TEACH Free Educator or TEACH Educator email invite.
If this is your first time using the new SmartMusic, click CONNECT AS TEACH EDUCATOR or TEACH FREE EDUCATOR to create your account and connect it to your organization in the role of Educator. If you already created an account in the new SmartMusic, click CONNECT AS TEACH EDUCATOR or TEACH FREE EDUCATOR to log into that account and connect it to your organization in the role of Educator (you can then skip straight to creating a class). Please note that this is an entirely new platform, and your SmartMusic Classic account does not carry over. Click here for more information.
Step 2: create your new SmartMusic account.
After you click CONNECT AS TEACH EDUCATOR or TEACH FREE EDUCATOR, the Create Your SmartMusic Account page appears, asking you to verify that you are 13 or older (in accordance with the COPPA rule). Answer the age verification question and click Next.
The SmartMusic Terms of Service agreement appears. After you are finished reading the Terms of Service agreement, indicate whether or not you accept the terms of service and click Next.
The Sign Up For Your SmartMusic Account page appears. Fill out your account profile information. All required fields have a red asterisk (*) next to them. Please note that you must create an account using the same email address you received an organization invite from in order to connect to your organization. Click Next when you are finished.
The SmartMusic application Home page appears.
Create your class by following the instructions in our Creating a class article.
