INSTRUCTIONS FOR PURCHASING YOUR SMARTMUSIC SUBSCRIPTION
Dear Parent or Guardian:
Your child's director is recommending SmartMusic as a very efficient and enjoyable way to practice at home. The code listed below will let you purchase a SmartMusic subscription for $25 - a savings of $95 over the normal home subscription of $9.95 per month.
Your code is: GOLDMUSIC
To purchase a SmartMusic Subscription for $25- Visit www.smartmusic.com and enter your code to purchase a subscription for $25. (This subscription gives you access to the entire accompaniment library and all of SmartMusic's features for one year from your date of purchase).
RENEWING Students: Make sure you log into your existing account with your e-mail address and password instead of setting up a new account. Please contact us if you have forgotten your password.
You can also choose to purchase a microphone for $15 and other accessories. A microphone is required for recording, Intelligent Accompaniment, tuning and assessment. While most microphones (including built-in mics) will work with SmartMusic, we recommend the SmartMusic microphone because it has undergone extensive testing to ensure the best results with the program. It also has a clip (instrumental) or headset (vocal) to place the mic in the optimal position.
For convenience, we accept all major credit cards. If you would prefer to pay with a check, just contact us at 800-843-2066 with your code for instructions on where to mail your check. You will be shipped a free SmartMusic CD-ROM and any accessories you ordered. (shipping charges apply) Install SmartMusic and the entire accompaniment library from the CD-ROM. No downloading is necessary. Open SmartMusic and activate your subscription by following the on-screen instructions. You will need to enter your email address and password that you created when you ordered your subscription. Activation takes a few minutes and does require an Internet connection. (No ongoing Internet connection is needed to use SmartMusic after activation.)
RENEWING Students: If your subscription has not finished yet, but your teacher has asked you to start a new subscription, you will need to MOVE your old subscription off your computer before activating your new one. Go to the Subscription Menu and select "Move." You will be prompted to enter the same e-mail address and password that you used to set up your account last year.
Start practicing! You can learn how to set-up and use SmartMusic by watching the SmartMusic QuickStart Videos. These videos can be accessed from the Help menu, the last screen of the Setup Wizard or the Welcome screen before you activate your subscription. If you have any questions about how to use SmartMusic or encounter any problems, please don't hesitate to call our toll-free Technical Support line at 866-240-4041. Our phones are open weekdays from 8.30am-8pm (CST). You can also submit your question online at http://www.smartmusic.com/support.
