Sheet Music on the Kindle
The Kindle DX has a nice, big screen. For the most part, the extra large screen is used to make newspapers and magazines easier to read. But one of the cooler applications that Amazon offers is the ability to buy sheet music.
Amazon sells sheet music from the catalog of Novato Music Press. While reading on a Kindle 2 is made a little difficult by the smaller screen, the Kindle DX does a great job of displaying full pages of music. Plus, sheet music on the Kindle store is cheap: individual pieces can be as little as about $1.50. The only real downside is the hassle of refreshing the Kindle whenever you need to turn the page, but this isn’t that different than regular sheet music.
Are there any musicians who read this blog? Have you tried reading sheet music off of the Kindle? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
