Practica Musica 7 Personal Edition  

  • Who buys it?  the student, via the Apple Store or the Windows Store.
  • What does it cost?  $44.95 complete, no term limit.

Purchased and owned by the student, the Practica Musica Personal Edition is ideal for students who have either a Macintosh or a Windows 10 computer available. The personal edition is the complete Practica Musica 7, including the digital textbook Exploring Theory and all activities.

If in a class using Ars Nova's "Webstudents" system, Practica Musica regularly uploads student progress data via the Internet to the class account. These scores then are available to the class instructor via a password-protected WebStudents Control Panel web page (read more about WebStudents).
Practica Musica 7 Site Edition  

  • Who buys it?  the high school, college or university
  • What does it cost?  $300 for a 1-year license or $800 for a 3-year license - licensed for 30 users. Sites are available for any user count.

Purchased and owned by the school, the Practica Musica 7 Site Edition can now be installed to the students' own personal computers, which is ideal for remote learning. Students need no authorization beyond the Webstudents account name of their class and are given a link to download their own copy of the program. Instructors view student progress via the Westudents online service at Ars Nova. Like the Personal Edition, the site edition contains all Practica Musica 7 learning activities and the Exploring Theory digital multimedia textbook. Instructors can remove students no longer in the class in order to make room for others.

The Site Edition can also be used on school computers but requires an individual user account for each student. On the Macintosh, these are created with the Users and Groups option in System Preferences; on Windows they are created using Settings/Accounts. If a student has a personal login on the computer it will connect that student with a personal file for Practica Musica just as it would on a student-owned computer.
