Drum Corps International Partners With MakeMusic, Inc.
Drum Corps International (DCI) today announced a partnership with MakeMusic, creators of SmartMusic, the interactive music software. Under the terms of the agreement, MakeMusic will be a Tour Level sponsor of the 2012 DCI Summer Tour and the 2012 DCI World Championships.
“This is a unique sponsorship as MakeMusic is also providing us with SmartMusic technology that will be integral to the success of DCI programs,” said Daniel Acheson, executive director and CEO of DCI. “The ability of students to prepare and perfect music before they come together to rehearse and perform is part of the huge advantage SmartMusic offers, and this will be a critical component of programs like ‘INpact Indiana’s Future – Band.’ Gone are the days of simply sending students sheet music and hoping for the best.”
