My daughter loves to play classical or any other type of music on her violin. She plays every day for fun and for her competition team and District festival. It's a lot of work but she loves it. When she would practice, she would have an issue staying organized and productive because she had so many pieces of new and old sheet music to go through. So, we decided to improve this system by making a sheet music organizer (or three).
Make your own sheet music organizer
First, we took out the older sheet music from her school music folder.
Since she didn't want to get rid of them, we grouped the older sheet music. It was a little difficult since she had a few sheet music pieces that didn't have a category and others that she knew she wouldn't have more sheet music. So, we decided to put all her school music pieces from other years in one binder.
Then, I went out and purchased 3 one inch binders that had the rings on the backside. I picked these binders because they would lay flat on the music stand as shown below.
Now the issue was what to put on the front of the binder. My daughter pulled her artwork from her art folder and used them for the cover of the binder. Did I mention that she loves to draw too? =)
We got to work and added the sheet music to the sheet protectors. I used standard low glaze sheet protectors you can find anywhere. And, we added one sheet to the front and one to the back of the sheet protector, as shown below.
Then, we used these great little tabs ad labeled them the song title. Below are several options you can buy on Amazon.com (affiliate).
Then added them to the corresponding sheet protector. We put the music in alphabetical order by song title to make it easier to find.
Here is the final product. What do you think? Looks pretty good, right?
