To create a class, log into https://admin.smartmusic.com and select Classes. The Classes page appears. Select Create a Class.
The Create Your Class page appears. If you are connected to a platform through SmartMusic (usually a school, or school district) you can choose to link the new class to the platform here. This will allow you to utilize any Standard and/or Premium student seats purchased by the platform.
Select how the class will be funded. Choose Free class to create a Free class. Students who join this class do not need a subscription. Only free content can be accessed and assigned to students in a Free class. For more information, take a look at Managing SmartMusic access.
Choose My Students to create a Student-Funded class. This will require your students to purchase a Performer subscription upon joining your class. This can be a useful option if your school or district is not providing paid access for your students.
If you've chosen to link the class to your platform, you will see the platform name as your third option. Choose this option to create a School-Funded class. In order to create a School-Funded class, you need to have purchased Standard student seats. This option will provide your student with one of the Standard seats already purchased by your school or district and allows your students to enroll in your class without needing a subscription of their own. To select School-Funded or Student-Funded you must be a Full Access Teacher.
Once an option has been chosen, the class details will appear below. Enter your Class Name, Educator Display Name, and the last date that students can join (if applicable). When you have entered all the necessary information select Create Class.
