Sheet music captures the measures and meters, chords and character of every music composition, from classical music to punk rock. With the advent of the Internet, digital sheet music has become a big hit with musicians around the world.
With the ease of downloading printable music sheets, budding and accomplished musicians now can have their fingers on the pulse of digitized music.
Do you know what one of the most popular items people download? Sheet music.
With search engines being all the rage these days, downloadable sheet music is one of the most overlooked but booming music businesses on the Internet today.
Sheet music is a musical composition traditionally made in printed form, for voice, piano, guitar or any other instrument. In the early 19th century, music sheets were printed with engraved plates and as you can imagine, music sheets were extremely inconvenient then.
Perhaps there is no bigger company in the online sheet music industry today than Sunhawk.com, a sheet music company based in Seattle. Sunhawk's proprietary Solero music viewer allows musicians to purchase music scores from a massive library of classical and popular songs, and then play back the music on their computers.
What is truly amazing about Sunhawk's technology is the downloader's ability to choose more than a hundred musical instruments, to modify the tempo of the music, and even change the color of the music notes on screen.
Sheet music is not only more convenient online, but more affordable as well. Sunhawk, like many Internet music retailers, have reduced the costs of sheet music products by as much as 30%. Most of their musical scores, in fact, are available to download for only $5.
The result is an increased demand for sheet music. Even Warner Bros. partnered with Sunhawk to deliver its music scores.
The ease of downloading sheet music, in fact, hides the complex technology it uses to provide this service. Sunhawk provides encryption technology for its downloadable files, one of the most sophisticated in the industry.
Each music sheet downloaded is embedded with a unique code that takes part in the protection of rights of musical composers and artists.
With the click of a button and access to a printer, musicians can download sheet after sheet of their favourite scores - from gospel to Christian, from bluesy guitar rifts to piano concertos. The world of music has never been more accessible.
Many aspiring musicians are hailing the digital music revolution as a real boon to their musical careers. With the ability to find music that matches their abilities and musical styling, musicians can learn at their own pace.
In addition, the new generation of digitized music sheets allows musicians to download individual sheets.
Now musicians no longer have to buy entire books to be able to play the one song in which they are most interested. The ability to choose from countless sheets of printable digital music will allow up-and-coming musicians to diversify their musical range and exposure.
Say good bye to the traditional music book, digitized sheets are the future. Get sheeted and download your favorite scores today!
With digital sheet music, we can now download our favorite musical scores in a digital form and print and play them as we want. We can store the digitized sheet music in searchable databases, even change the scores if we have musical talent.
The best thing about digitized music is that it is available for all musical instruments, and for all kinds of music.
A music lover need not scour libraries or second hand sheet music marts to locate the composition she wants. The musical composition can be sourced digitally from the hundreds of music sites on the net.
It is now possible to download the best musical compositions written for the piano, guitars, saxophone, violins, or any other instrument. It is also possible to download and play the compositions of famous composers, and get sheet music written in historical times.
Most sheet music sites charge a small fee to provide these compositions in a digital form. A few sites provide them free, but then the free range of digitized music is limited.
The digital technology used is simple. Sheet music is converted into a Pdf file, and all that's needed is a copy of Acrobat Reader, a free tool available on the net, to use the digitized music sheets.
Some develop their own applications transmit digital sheets. For instance, Musicnotes.com asks its users to install the Musicnotes Viewer to read the sheet music that they have downloaded. But Sheetmusicplus.com is always our favorite.
It is not only the music lovers who have benefited from the digitization of sheet music. The music industry too has found a valuable source of revenue. It now charges royalty for each composition that is digitized and sold on the net.
