NE BAND FEST INFORMATION AND PERMISSION FORM
This year we will be using a computer program called SmartMusic in band. Each student will sign up for a free account using their Minneapolis Public Schools login ID and password. All students will need to provide a parent email address. Students will use their account to login and complete playing assessments on computers at school.
I highly recommend families buying a SmartMusic subscription for use at home. A one-year subscription for home costs $40.
