To do this, you will need:

  • EEi Student Activation Code - found on the title page of your EE Student Book

Step 1: EEi Student Sign-in (Create an Account)

Go to and select the Student Icon.

From there select Create an Account

Once your account is created, the Student Icon is where you will sign in every time.

Step 2: I Don’t Have a School Code

Since you are creating an account that is not tied to a school or teacher account, you can choose:

“I don’t have a school code”

If you need to join a teacher’s class at a later time, you can always do that from the My Account section of your account.

Step 3: Age Verification

To create an EEi Student Account not connected to a school, you will need to be 13 years of age or older. If you are under 13, parent/guardian assistance will be required.

Step 4: Terms and Student Activation Code

Agree to terms and enter the EEi Student Activation Code from your book.

This step simply verifies that you have your own personal copy of an Essential Elements Student Book. This is also where you will enter the Student Activation Code found on the title page of your EE Book.

One EEi Student Account is included with the purchase of an EE Student Book. Therefore, Student Activation Codes are good for one activation. Once you use this code, it can no longer be used to create an EEi account.

Step 5: Finish Account Creation & Confirm

For this final step, you will create a username and password. You will use this to log-in to your EEi Account from this point forward.

We strongly recommend writing this down in a safe place.

If you are creating the account without an EEi Student ID, you will also:

  • Enter your name

  • Select your instrument

You will confirm your account Information to finalize your account creation.

Final Tip: Enter an E-mail Address

Once you log-in to EEi, you will be prompted to enter an e-mail address. This is optional, but we recommend this for customer service purposes only and will allow you to use the Forgot Username/Password option if you ever forget your log-in information.

If your school e-mail blocks outside e-mail, we suggest putting in a parent e-mail for password recovery and customer service items.
