Terms and Conditions

Overview

Our Teacher/Student platform was created to make teaching and learning more efficient and effective. The platform enables teachers to assign enhanced practice materials (exercises and repertoire) to their students. These materials are enhanced with MatchMySound (MMS), an assessment and feedback technology that graphically displays where the student has played correct and where they made errors in pitch and rhythm. We understand that no one size fits all. Teachers can customize the assessment to make it easier or harder depending upon their student’s abilities and skill levels.
