Using the iPad to read sheetmusic

Lately many of the questions I get asked after a performance have been iPad related. I was going to write up something about using an iPad for reading sheetmusic but my Facebook friends told me about a great blog post by clarinetist Heather Roche. Check it out!

For the record, here's what I use:

  • 30GB Retina Display iPad 
  • AirTurn Bluetooth pedal
  • Gig Easy iPad mount
  • Straight vocal mic stand when I'm performing close to home and a kick drum boom mic stand with short boom for touring (it fits into my suitcase!).
