Frequently Asked Questions - Student Edition

By Rachel Mann - June 03, 2020

What is Harmonia?

Harmonia is an app used in combination with a proprietary learning management system (LMS). Our free Harmonia app is the combines musical score notation with a patented real-time music analysis engine, which means that as users enter notes on a staff or type in analytical symbols such as pitch names or roman numerals, the app recognizes and comments on what they are doing. Our LMS provides a platform for content delivery: teachers use our LMS to add lessons and exercises, set due dates and content delivery options, review computer-graded student work, and more; and students use the LMS to check their progress, activate our mentoring/comment system, and purchase additional study content if desired.

Will Harmonia work on my computer?

Harmonia will work on all Mac OSX and Windows desktop machines as well as tablets such as iPad and Android. Contact our developers if you have any questions.

What does Harmonia cost?

The Harmonia App is free for all users and available for desktop and tablet platforms here. Access to the Harmonia Dashboard, our proprietary learning management system, is free for teachers and subscription-based for students. Pricing is related to the number of weeks a student pays for access. A typical 16-week semester is $29.95, but quarters and summer courses may be less. See our pricing chart.

Do you offer site licenses?

Yes. We offer both site licenses and single-user licenses. Most of our high school customers pay by site licenses. Contact us at contact@illiacsoftware.com to get started.

What is a Harmonia subscription?

Access to the Harmonia Dashboard is a subscription-based service, so pricing is related to the number of weeks a student pays for access. A typical 16-week semester is $29.95, but quarters and summer courses may be less. See our pricing chart: link to pricing chart.

Why am I locked out of the Harmonia Cloud?

If you find yourself locked out of the Harmonia Cloud while in the app, it is because the subscription to access the course materials has not been received. Log in to the website, click on the dashboard and follow the payment instructions. Go back to the app, log out and log back in to reset your login credentials.

How do I find my grades and submitted work?
