After your organization has purchased SmartMusic, you need to create a SmartMusic account and connect it to your organization through the email invite you received. Either watch the video or read the steps below to learn how to get started.
If you watched the video, click here next to learn how to invite yourself or others to connect as a teacher.
- Step 1: open the email invite.
- Step 2: create your new SmartMusic account.
- Step 3: activate your account.
- Step 4: invite yourself or others to connect as a teacher.
Step 1: open the email invite.
If you are the designated SmartMusic platform owner, the email has the subject line Your SmartMusic platform is ready. If you are not the SmartMusic platform owner, but have been invited as an administrator, you receive a Connect to your SmartMusic organization email. Either way, you take the same steps to create your account and connect.
Open the email invite from your email inbox. If you did not receive an email invite, please check out this article for help.
If this is your first time using the new SmartMusic, click SIGN UP AND CONNECT to create your account and connect it to your organization in the role of Admin. If you already created an account in the new SmartMusic, click LOGIN AND CONNECT to log into that account and connect it to your organization in the role of Administrator (you can then skip to Step 4). 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 SIGN UP AND CONNECT, 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.
A page appears letting you know that a verification email has been sent to the email address you provided.
Step 3: activate your account.
Open the Welcome to the new SmartMusic email and click ACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT. If you did not receive a verification email, make sure you meet SmartMusic's email requirements, then go to https://admin.smartmusic.com/login and log in with your new account information. The Activate Your Account page appears, where you can resend the activation email.
The Login page appears. Enter the email address and password for your new account, and click Login to activate it and connect it to your organization in the role of Administrator.
Step 4: invite yourself or others to connect as a teacher.
If you are both a teacher and an administrator, you need to invite yourself as a teacher next. You can also invite others to connect to your organization as teachers. To learn how to do either of these, watch the video or read below.
If you watched the video, click here next to learn how to create a class.
To invite yourself or another as a teacher, click on Teachers > Invite New Teacher.
The Invite New Teacher page appears. Enter your email address (or another teacher's address) > select either TEACH or TEACH Free to designate which you (or another teacher) would like to use to connect > and click Invite Teacher.
You (or another teacher) receive a Connect to your SmartMusic organization email invitation to connect to your organization as a teacher. Open the invite and click LOGIN AND CONNECT (other teachers follow these steps instead). The Login page appears. Log in using your existing Administrator account to connect it as a teacher as well. Select Home.
The SmartMusic application Home page appears. Next, create your class by following the instructions in our Creating a class article.
