ClassicalMusic for Tablet Series offers piano masterworks by classical composersformatted to be read on 10 inch tablets. I use an Amazon Kindle with MobileSheets Pro and an Air Turn blue tooth foot pedal to practice andperform piano music. Mobile Sheets Pro imports music from Drop Boxonto a Kindle tablet quickly and efficiently. For performers who use adifferent tablet, there are similar products available to provide tablet usersthe same functionality.

Thesepieces have not been arranged, but most have been edited slightly, and havebeen formatted to fit screen size. For example, first and second endings areoften removed and the repeated measures and endings written into the music sothe performer can avoid having to go back to previous pages. These kinds ofsection repeats were invented to spare the composer’s time and the cost ofextra paper and ink. But with a tablet the cost of paper and ink is irrelevant.

Althoughthere are more page turns with a 10 inch screen compared with letter sizepages, the readability of the music (due to the backlighting on the tablet) andthe portability of the music (travelling with a small tablet instead ofoversized books or portfolios of sheet music) easily makes up for the extrapage turns.

Your purchase provides one .pdf file that contains both the tablet edition and theletter size page (printable) version. There are several programs availableonline that will allow you to separate this .pdf file into 2 .pdf files to makeit more useful.
