Interactive Music Sharing
We often hear from educators that one of the biggest challenges when teaching music is finding an easy way to distribute music for the classroom. Traditionally, this has been done by exporting and emailing countless PDFs, or printing the music and distributing physical copies. This often causes issues with different versions of the music, lost files or pages, and an overall poor experience for the players.
This is where the interactive music sharing feature in Finale v27 comes in. Powered by a unique integration with MakeMusic Cloud (formerly SmartMusic), interactive music sharing enables teachers to upload their music to the cloud in seconds, and instantly share it with anyone they choose, without leaving Finale.
With interactive music sharing, you can:
- Make changes to a previously distributed file with the click of a button, ensuring that your class always has access to the most up-to-date version of their music.
- Open the piece in the MakeMusic Cloud Practice app, which provides a suite of web-based tools that will transform students’ practice experience, including:
- Accompaniment from Garritan’s world class sound library
- Real-time feedback and assessment as they play along
- Practice tools such as a metronome, tuner, and more
- Download PDFs of shared music
