Soundslice For Teachers
Soundslice For Teachers
Soundslice For Teachers, launched in February 2015, is a web application that combines music notation, source recordings, video, and practice tools in a single interface. Teachers can use it to create interactive scores and share them privately with students.

Soundslice founder Adrian Holovaty, a guitar teacher in Chicago, has been testing and refining the software with his students for the past year. Band, orchestra, and choral directors around the country, as well as private instructors are already using the software.

One of the key features of Soundslice for Teachers is that the tool re-renders its notation on the fly, so that it’s easily viewable regardless of the user’s device. Soundslice is accessible from any computer, tablet, or mobile device, with no installation required. It works on Chromebooks, iPads, iPhones and Android devices, along with normal desktop and laptop computers. Soundslice For Teachers costs $20/month or $200/year. Students access it for free, and there’s no limit on number of students or number of interactive scores you create. There’s a 15-day free trial available now at
