As you begin playing the flute, collecting music to play becomes a natural hobby. The more you find and collect, the more you can play!
In this article, I am going to give you some tips to help you organize your flute music so you can continue your collection.
This is one great way to organize your flute music.
One of the most frustrating things as a musician is not being able to find that one piece of sheet music that you absolutely love and just can’t remember where you saw it last.
First, in the membership area here at Learn Flute Online I have hundreds of modules to help you learn. Each module not only contains sheet music and MP3 accompaniments, but they each have an individualized note sheet to use as you go through the video lessons.
I encourage each and every one of my students to find a binder to keep all of their sheet music and notes in right from the get go. This is one great way to organize your flute music and keep everything together.
Then, you can go to an individual module in your binder and find the sheet music for the piece you are looking for with all the notes, tips, and tricks you need to play the piece well. How convenient!
As you continue your flute learning journey, you will find that your music collection with get bigger and bigger. So maybe you start with a small 1 inch- 3 ring binder and then you can either start a new binder or get a bigger binder!
Since I have been playing the flute for over 30 years, you can probably imagine that I have mountains of music. Just recently, I was trying to go through it all to organize it in a better way.
I found that it can be really beneficial to organize your music by category. This could be by music genre, difficulty, composer, or time period. It really depends on what you like and what works for you.
Technology also allows us to keep digital files as well nowadays. Who knew?!
So, have I inspired you to dig into your collection and start organizing?
