Use these five tips to enhance your sheet music usability and ensure the best conditions for performance.

1. Ensure great page turns

Good page turns should be your top priority to ensure the best conditions for the musicians and help them perform your music.

2. Musician first

When you make choices about notation, always focus on giving the musicians the best conditions to perform your music.

3. Less is more

Don’t clutter your score with too much information. Keep things simple and only add what is strictly necessary.

4. Be consistent

Avoid ambiguity by ensuring the notation is consistent to improve clarity in the score.

5. Make instructions brief

Keep instructions as short and precise as possible.
