New iOS and Android Apps from Musicnotes Modernize the Sheet Music Experience

MADISON, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–, the world’s leading publisher and retailer of digital
sheet music and digital sheet music technology, today announced the
official release of its next
generation of free apps
for iOS and Android devices.

The release includes full redesigns and enhancements of the company’s
top-rated tablet and phone apps, providing musicians a streamlined,
interactive sheet music experience across major mobile platforms.

Among the most notable features of the company’s new iOS and Android app
overhaul is fully functional audio-visual playback with audio mixing and
adjustable tempo. Using the new audio mixer, musicians can control
and/or mute the volume of any instrument, voice or part of a piece of
sheet music in playback mode. For example, a vocalist can mute just the
vocal line for on-the-go accompaniment anywhere at any time, or an
instrumentalist may isolate parts to practice separately. Then, using
built-in tempo controls he or she can slow down the music to better
study a problematic passage, and speed up gradually until they’ve
mastered their performance.

Musicnotes’ apps are available to anyone as free downloads from Apple’s
App Store and Google Play, and come pre-installed with a selection of
free sheet music to get you started. Additionally, most sheet music
files purchased at offer instant in-app key transposition
– an important feature for those looking to adjust a song’s range to
better match their voice or instrument.

Jon Higgins, Director of Technology at, designated
simplicity, functionality and customer suggestions as top-of-mind when
developing the Musicnotes apps. Most of the Musicnotes app developers
are musicians themselves, and they’re inspired by their own musical
needs as well as feedback from insightful, passionate Musicnotes
customers, he said.

“One of the most important parts of our development process is to have
our employees, who are musicians themselves, actually use our apps,”
Higgins said. “If something isn’t right for us, we know it won’t be
right for our customers.”
