I’ve been using MusicNotes.com to purchase instant sheet music downloads for over five years now. In fact, I’m a member of the MusicNotes Digital Club, which means I save 10% on every piece of music I purchase. (That may not sound like much, but when you buy as much as I do, it adds up.)
The only bummer about buying sheet music from MusicNotes is that once you’ve printed your allotted single copy, you can no longer access that piece of music.
Enter the MusicNotes app for iPad. I discovered this last week when I was downloading yet another song, and saw on the sidebar of my screen that it was “iPad compatible”. So I clicked on the link to read more, and found that if you have an iPad, you can access your account and then view all of the compatible songs (most of which are) right on the screen. Not only that, but you can annotate and transpose the score right on your iPad.
This app has opened up an entire collection of music for use with my students, and also just for my own personal use. It even works with my new wireless foot pedal-controlled page turner, the AirTurn BT-105.
There are a couple of other music-related iPad apps that are currently rocking my world, but each deserves its own blog post. More to come soon! Which apps have you been digging lately?
