MakeMusic, Inc. And Hal Leonard Corporation Announce Joint Development Plan

MakeMusic, Inc. (NASDAQ: MMUS), creators of SmartMusic interactive music learning software for band, orchestra and voice, today announced it has signed an agreement with Hal Leonard Corporation, the world’s largest music print publisher.

Under the agreement terms, MakeMusic will dramatically expand its SmartMusic music library to include many of the most popular songs of the 20th century and today’s contemporary hits. For the first time ever, those songs will be available for purchase from within the SmartMusic application.

“This agreement represents a new era of joint development between the Hal Leonard Corporation and MakeMusic,” said MakeMusic CEO Karen van Lith. “This new, pay-per-title business model will enable current SmartMusic subscribers, and future music-makers, to practice and perform their favorite pop compositions within SmartMusic.”

Van Lith also notes that the Hal Leonard partnership further positions SmartMusic as the category leader, allowing MakeMusic to more deeply penetrate the large and growing community of music makers everywhere.

Hal Leonard President Larry Morton said, “We’re proud and pleased to provide many of the world’s most popular, best-loved songs for MakeMusic to offer its SmartMusic subscribers under an exciting new business model. We’re closely integrating our production processes which will benefit both companies, our songwriters, publisher partners and student musicians alike.”

Hal Leonard represents in print many well-known artists including Adele, Aerosmith, The Beatles, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, Kelly Clarkson, Coldplay, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, Christina Perri, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, Elvis Presley, Queen, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, U2, The Who, Stevie Wonder and hundreds of others, plus the music of Irving Berlin, the Walt Disney Company, Glee, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Motown and Rodgers & Hammerstein.

SmartMusic is used by more than 10,000 schools, colleges and university music programs in North America. For more than 14 years, educators and students have loved how SmartMusic software has provided a powerful, unique music-learning experience.
