Music Educator FAQ

Can my students use this service?

Yes, educators have the option of purchasing accounts for their students at a highly discounted rate. These accounts give students unlimited access to Sight Reading Factory® for one (1) year and way to practice the very important skill of sight reading on their own. The accounts for the educator and students are also linked so that the educator can track usage, monitor progress, and give assignments for assessments.

For more information on the benefits of student accounts, see Feature Focus: Student Accounts.

How do student accounts work?

When an educator buys student accounts for their students they receive a Student Code. They can then give that code out to their students who use it to subscribe to SightReadingFactory.com. Student accounts are sold at a highly discounted rate and offer a way for the educator and student accounts to be linked so that the educator can track usage, monitor progress, and give assignments for assessments.
