At Flat and as a remote company, we strive to make Remote Music Learning easy and engaging. If your school is affected by closure due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have solutions for you to keep the creativity going.
Free Flat for Education access
If you don't have a Flat for Education site license, we are offering it for free to everyone through July 1, 2020.

Flat for Education is GDPR, COPPA, and FERPA compliant, and will give you access to a private website for you and your students.
You can use it to easily share interactive music scores, distribute copies of sheet music templates to your students to complete, create remote and live collaborations, and a lot more!
Flat for Education works with your favorite tools:
- Google Classroom: Quickly sync your courses from Classroom and create seamless music notation/composition assignments.
- Microsoft 365: Sign-in with your Microsoft Accounts, share interactive sheet music to your Microsoft Teams Classes and Microsoft OneNote Notebooks.
- Canvas LMS: Sign-in in 1-click from your Canvas Courses, use Flat as an external and easy-to-use music notation software for your assignments, and embed sheet music into your Canvas pages.
And if you don't want to put any personal information on Flat, you can create anonymous accounts for your students.
Simplifying distance learning with Live collaboration and feedback
With the distance, communication and collaboration can be hard, especially if you want to work synchronously with someone. When using Flat, everything is live. You can see when your students start working on an activity, access their work in real-time, give live feedback to them, and of course edit a single music score with multiple people at the same time, whatever device they use, wherever they are.
This collaboration aspect is part of our company culture: With a team of 7 located in 6 countries and working remotely all the time, designing products that simplify collaboration and distance working is part of what we do daily.
