Eden Prairie’s MakeMusic has been trailblazing the music software industry for more than 20 years. The company’s Finale and SmartMusic software helps composers, arrangers, teachers, students, and musicians create masterpieces and receive feedback on their work.
Now it’s moving into the mobile device market with a new iPad app. “We knew the market was moving towards mobile, so we needed to make sure our products could move to mobile devices,” says Karen VanDerBosch, chief financial officer.
The app, which is expected to launch this spring, is currently touring educational tradeshows and is receiving very positive feedback. It includes practice tools, music assessment and accompaniment features, and access to the entire content library with a SmartMusic subscription. The app is a free download with subscription ($36/year). makemusic.com
