One of the great benefits to using SmartMusic is the immediate visual feedback that is provided for each recording. The visual assessment uses different colors and spacing to communicate to students what was played correctly and what was played incorrectly.

 

 

 

Pitch Assessment

 

When recording in SmartMusic the recorded noteheads will turn red or green to provide pitch assessment. Green noteheads indicate that the correct pitch was played at the correct time.

Red noteheads indicate incorrect pitch. The vertical placement of a red notehead on the staff indicates the pitch that was played.

Rhythmic Assessment

 

When recording in SmartMusic, yellow noteheads will appear to indicate correct pitches that are played early or late. The horizontal placement of the notehead indicates whether the note was played early or late.

Visual rhythmic assessment applies to correct pitches played out of time. Any incorrect pitch is marked red regardless of the timing.

Color Blind Mode will adjust the coloration of the visual assessment for color blind accessibility. The cursor will appear light purple. Correctly assessed notes will appear blue. Incorrect notes will appear light pink, with vertical placement on the staff indicating the pitch played. Early or late notes will appear green, with horizontal placement on the staff indicating the timing.
