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?
Ooooh, I’d never heard of that app! I like that. I did a whole series on music apps that I like for the iPad, but I love hearing about different ones!! Keep it coming! :)
It is a must-have, Stephanie! I have downloaded all of your suggestions as well…thank you for those! And I definitely have lots more coming :)
I’ll definitely have to check out that app as well as update my blog with a few of my favorites! Off the top of my head, I use my Ultimate Guitar and Garage Band apps the most… almost every day!
Elise – do you have a subscription to Ultimate Guitar for your iPad?
Yes, I do have the subscription. It was well worth it for me and allows me to access all my ‘Favorite’ items. If I mark something as a favorite on my work computer or on my iPad, I will have offline access to that song anywhere I go!
