Digital Scores and BlackBinder’s Automatic scroll, a new reality in Conservatories and Schools of Music
After our successful test with them last academic term, now The Broken Bones Trombone Quartet of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester, New York, starts this academic term using BlackBinder from the beginning of this course.
We would like to share their feedback: (you can also watch them performing using BlackBinder in their recital here):
- They say that prefer scrolling than turning pages
- Music is extremely clear and easy to read from a distance
- BlackBinder keeps the performance hands-free and allows them to focus more on playing their instrument.
- It is easy to take notes and they appreciate the clarity they can write with and having the option to color-code.
To them, as to many others, BlackBinder app is the digital sheet music reader of the future: no need of turning pages or using foot pedals or any other Bluetooth devices, no more PDF editing for repetitions, a free library with the most inclusive library of essential trumpet pieces (adding more for trombone, horn and tuba soon!) setlists, annotations, sharing annotations and scores…
The best digital sheet music reader and the automatic scroll, gives them the possibility to have all their digital scores in a single App. In addition, BlackBinder allows constant student-teacher contact, so they can annotate and share in the classroom or from anywhere they are.
September is the month of chaos, requests, new instruments, new scores, books, papers, etc. In BlackBinder, we know this well because it also happened to us, and that is why we want to make this beginning as comfortable as possible.
Eastman is one of the first to take the leap, but there are still more to come and others who have already use it like Guildhall School of Music in London, Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, McGuill University in Canada or Musikene in San Sebastian.
The future of musical education is already here.
