Practica Musica Student Edition  (recommended)

  • Who buys it?  the student, via download
  • What does it cost?  $45 for downloadable installer

Purchased and owned by the student, the Practica Musica Student Edition is ideal for college students on the go. Because students buy and install this software to their own computers, they are never tied down using college-owned computers. The Student Edition contains all the same activities as the Site Edition and Standard Edition and lacks only multiple user scorekeeping and activity customization. It also includes a digital copy of the Exploring Theory textbook, available as a menu selection from within the program.

As students move through the various activities, Practica Musica regularly uploads student progress data via the Internet to Ars Nova's WebStudents server. These scores then are available to the class instructor via a password-protected WebStudents Control Panel web page (read more about WebStudents).
