I'm new to the Smart Music program and loaded the software last night. I have triplet 14 year olds that are freshmen in highschool.
There music teacher recommended the program for practicing, and being a Finale user myself, I was anxious to comply. After loading the software, one of my sons's (xylophone) searched the method books only to find beginner method 1 and 2 books, nothing more advanced. I could see that some of the exercises got a little more advanced, but not much more. So we then searched the solo section. There, the only items found in the "Sample folders" where you can print the music were also very simple, possibly border-line intermediate level.
My question therefore is, How can a student of upper intermediate to lower advanced levels use this program. Am I missing something.
Also, for xylophone, what does one choose from in the solo section?
My other Son is in the Suzuki Violin book 6. I found that ok. My daughter plays flute and is also beyond books 1 and 2.
Thanks for your input.
