How do you organize your fiddle sheet music?
Tara asked, “How do you organize your sheet music? By key signature? Alphabetically? By origin (Irish, American ..)? Most favorite to least favorite? Other? I know this is a personal preference, but I’m curious 🙂
Organize your music so that you can find what you need.
I keep a few useful books handy.
I suggest you could focus more on organizing your practice sessions.
I’m now using a note-taking app called Roam to document my practice. It allows me to store sheet music (from sources other than books).
I keep a simple alphabetical list of tunes I’ve worked on recently.
I also keep track of what I practice each day. Then the next day I scan over this and start with things that I know were challenging.
☝️Review what you did yesterday so you can build on that today.
I also allow myself to work on things that I’m interested in, things that resonate in the moment. I’m always trying to find a balance between building on things I’m learning and finding things that are enjoyable.
