Get started as a student in MakeMusic Cloud by first joining a class and creating an account. Students need a valid email address and a Class Code to connect. Students may use a personal, parental, or school email address. Teachers provide the Class Code in this format: XXXXX-XXXXX. Read the article below to learn how to create an account and join a class.


Jump to:



Step 1: Join Your Class.

Once you have your Class Code from your teacher, go to http://home.smartmusic.com. Skip to the bottom of the screen and select Join a class.




Enter your Email address and your Class Code. Select Find your Class.




The Class Name and Teacher associated with that Class Code appears. If the class information is correct, select Join This Class




Step 2: Create Your Account.


The Sign in with Google or School Passport / Create an Account page appears.




If you're using Google or School Passport single sign-on, choose the appropriate option.


If neither of those apply to you, skip to the Create an Account section.


Verify your Country, Timezone and verify if you are 13 or older (in accordance with the COPPA rule). If you are under 13 years old, you can still create an account and join a class. Enter your Name and Backup Email.


It is recommended that you include a Backup Email. If you forget your password and do not have access to the primary email address on your account, you can send a password reset email to your Backup Email address. When you reset your password on the login page, the password reset email is sent to both your primary email address and your Backup Email address.


Create your Username and Password. Use the drop-down menu to select a Primary Instrument, (required). Secondary Instrument is optional.


Select I have read and agree to the terms and conditions (required). Select Submit.




After you select Submit, the Email Activation Sent message appears.




Step 3: Activate Your Account.

Go to your email and open the Welcome to MakeMusic Cloud activation email. Select Confirm your email to activate your account. In the event that you cannot receive outside emails, do not worry; your teacher will be able to activate your account.




The Login page appears. Select one of the following options to get started:

  • Sign in with Google
  • Sign in with School Passport
  • Enter your Username or Email, Password, and select Login




If you sign in with Google or School Passport, you will receive the following message:




Click I understand to proceed or click Cancel to return to the Login page.


After you have joined your class, you can complete your assignments.
