Preparing lists of students for Focus on Sound

You'll need a list of students to add to the software. The MusicFirst system makes it easy to upload batches of students. You can make a single list of all the students you want to have access, then add them all in a single operation.

Please follow the link below to our special page on this topic.

How to prepare a school list data file for adding to Focus on Sound
PLEASE NOTE, YOU CAN USE A MICROSOFT WORD TABLE IF YOU HAVE TO, BUT A LIST OF DATA IN WORD, WHERE YOU'VE USED TABS INSTEAD OF A TABLE, IS UNUSABLE.

Moving students at the end of a school year

Go to the Classes menu.

To delete a whole class (e.g. a class that has left), select the class and click on 'Delete class and/or students'. You can then delete the whole class, including all the students and the class name - or just delete the students, leaving the class where it is.

Then you can move students into the empty class (or move them in any way you like) by choosing the class you want to move them from and clicking the 'Move Class Students' button. Choose the class you want to move them to. You can select individual students or a whole class.
