Is there any difference, full version vs educational version? Also, to qualify do you need to be in the music field or can any ole teacher get the discount? I want to dive in the full version by winter break. Is there some sort of clause about not using samples professionally?
They might say you need to be a music teacher, I've read the requirements before but don't remember what they say exactly. But you should just e mail them and say you're planning on implimenting it in your classroom next year in some way and I'm sure they'll approve it. I'm not sure if the EDU version is Standard or Suite but whatever it is it's the same as the full price retail version of whatever package it is, suite or standard. I've e mailed software companies before about stuff like this and found them to be only semi strict on their rules as related to who qualifies.
Edit: oh a likely restriction would be resale. As in its a license for you and you only without any ability of transfer to another party at any point in time.
It is 9 suite and is 499 instead of the 799. It sounds like I would have to verify through a teacher ID or get a school verification. It doesn't say anything about being a music teacher or music student. I am actually considering using music in the classroom when we learn about sound waves but it would need to be a free ap or relatively cheap for the i-Pad.
I was wondering if anyone gone that route or not. I do plan on teaching piano in the near future however I do not have an ID for that.
have you considered checking eBay? There's one EDU version on there right now for 350.00. I'm a firm believer in all things eBay even the purchase of software which involves license transfer from the seller. The seller in that particular listing says the EDU verification process is very simple.
