    Here are the codes you need to sign up for Smart Music.  If you don't have your instrument, this program will not work for you, do the assignment below.


    Note:  It may show up that you are signing up for a class at South Hopkins, my apologies. 

    I don't think I can get that fixed, but this will work for you. 

    Go To:  Smart Music

    Click on New Smart Music

    Then Join a Class and enter the code according to your grade.


    6th Grade:  WZLJ2-4KLEM


    7/8th Grade:  X27QM-W3FU3


    You will have assignments as soon as you sign up.  Play around on the program and submit when you have done your best. 



    These assignments will happen daily starting today. Send the response to me in a google doc to:  david.moss@hopkins.kyschools.us 

    You will need to do one for 3/18 and 3/19, then each SKILLS Day we have from here on out.  

    After Smart Music gets up and running you will have the option of either this assignment or Smart Music. 


    Band Assignment:

    Create a Playlist

    Listen to three songs (your choice)

    In a Google Doc (or if you don't have access, on a piece of paper) tell me:

    -What three songs you chose

    -What elements did you like in the songs you chose?

    -What elements did you not like in the songs you chose?

    -Why did you chose the songs you did?


    We are still working on creating the Smart Music platform for you during this time.

    As soon as I get course codes for you, each student will need to sign up for a Smart Music account and we will begin there.  Smart Music is a great program, and best of all, it's free for you to use this year.  Please check back Thursday afternoon.  I hope to have everything you need on the website then.  










    2020 Dates




     All future dates have been removed until we resume school.
