Sure people may care about the environmental impact of the amount of paper that lead sheets produce, but honestly, we’re sure that what we are all really worried about is just the weight and the mess of paper. For some, it can become even more difficult to travel, because of how organizing and unbent these sheets have to be, becoming a huge nuisance. It’s 2018! There are clear ways that this problem can be avoided. The times are digitizing, so should our sheet music.
If we could just use a tablet to be able to view all of our sheet music, a lot of problems would be solved. It would be much easier to turn pages, not hassle with organizing the music linearly, be able to have everything neatly organized on one light and easily accessible server. Tablets are the technology of the future.
Turning pages while practicing a piece now has become much less of a hassle, as a click on the screen (or even pressing a bluetooth pedal) can replace an entire arm movement of a page turn. Printing sheet music, when not in access to a published copy, can also become a huge hassle, however, with a tablet it is as easy as downloading a pdf. If the music appears to be too small on the screen, zooming in is now becoming an option. Even making notation is now possible on the tablet with touch styluses.
Ultimately, utilizing tablets is making music reading so much easier. It makes the process of playing much cleaner and enjoyable. This is a bandwagon we’d definitely recommend jumping on.
