Why in the name of music is there not a conductor score view? This should be the most basic thing available on here. 

Copyright is not an excuse. 

The conductor view should be available for everyone - Teachers/Students. If students select it then they can see their part highlighted in the conductor view. They should be able to play their parts within this view as well. It should be the simplest thing yet I am dumbfounded as to why it isn't here.

    I second that.  I can't really audition repertoire without the score.

    Agreed. If anyone has any info on how to view the full conductor score of music on the smartmusic library, that would be most appreciated.

    I fully agree- can we please get the conductor score added into SmartMusic?  I want to use SmartMusic for my junior college band and orchestra program, but this lacking of a conductor score is a big current challenge.

    So, I am not missing something I guess. Am I correct that you cannot see the score with the new SmartMusic?

    How unfortunate is that! If that feature is not added you can be sure I will not renew my subscription!

    Agree!  I would love to be able to instruct the choral students how to read a full octavo.  It's a difficult concept for especially beginning singers, and since this virtual platform is what we are currently using it will delay that teaching.  This will be a one and done year for me if that option isn't added.

    Is this even being addressed? 
    What is the assumption here? Use smart music to help students practice and then buy the music for performances?

    I find that if I import an XML score ( say from Finale), then it is visible - at least for me, not sure about students, - I've only been using SmartScore for a week.

    so a workaround wold be to make a complete score in some notation program, and then import it. Lot of work!  I too was shocked to see NO score views in the pieces.

    We've been using SmartMusic for a few years, but obviously, this year is quite different than any other. If we can access the music for students, how are we supposed to lead a rehearsal? I can't go into my building to even use a score of pieces we already own. Does this really mean we have to purchase scores of everything we want to rehearse as an ensemble? Even just to rehearse, not to perform in any way?

    I recognize that the system is being used for activities beyond the original scope of being a practice and assessment tool.  However, the global situation has changed dramatically.  SM needs to make conductor scores and Google Classroom integration a priority over adding music to the library.

    So still no conductor scores?  I'm trying to do a Virtual performance, and it is near impossible to work on this music with the kids without a score.  They see more than I can?  Also, how can a teacher access the parts?  So far the kids are having to present their screens to me in order for me to help them.  Really poor use of rehearsal time.  It is challenging enough.

    We are paying for this service mainly because of the extensive library and requirements of not distributing paper music.  Please make this easier for teachers.

    Anyone hear from support on this. It's pretty insane that the teachers can't access a score view as we teach Virtually

    Hi Brandon,

    I also inquired about such feature, as it is needed. This was the response and it was suggested that I post my request here, in hopes that it would help add such a feature.

    SmartMusic is intended to be a practice aid for students and a way for teachers to help guide that practice. As such, it is designed to display the student's part wile providing full accompaniment. Unfortunately at this point, SmartMusic does not currently have a feature which displays the full score.

    Perhaps one day?
