Preparing Lessons for Music Students

If you are a music teacher, then Composer is an excellent tool for preparing customized lessons for your students:

B816For beginning students, create music exercises from scratch, according to your own teaching methods.
B816Start with an arrangement that is close to what you want to offer to your students, but rearrange it so that it better matches the playing level and musical tastes of your students.

The arrangement that you start with might be a MIDI file that you find on the Internet. Or, you might start with some already printed sheet music that, if you have music keyboard skills, you can quickly play into Composer in real-time or step-time.

B816Add annotations to the music such as fingerings, rehearsal marks, and textual instructions such as "play evenly here".
