Sheet Music Direct for iPad

By Music Sales Group

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Sheet Music Direct for iPad. An unrivalled sheet music experience.

The best sheet music app on iPad has just got even better! With a radical new design, smooth interface and best-in-class score playback backed up by a massive catalogue of sheet music you’ll be playing like a pro in no time. Download now and get free sheet music, too!


= Tuner =
Stay in tune without leaving the app. A free powerful Tuner is now at your fingertips.

= Set Lists =
Easily create lists of sheet music or guitar tabs for your next performance or practice session.

= Wishlist =
Spotted a score or tab you like in our store? Now you can add it to your Wishlist to purchase later.


= Practice Tools =
Study the song by slowing down sheet music or guitar tab audio playback, invoking metronome click track or simply mute the track part you're playing so you can feel like part of the band.

= Custom Scores =
Transpose a score to a different key, change instrument audio or note size — and, of course, you can revert back to the original setting any time.

= Import PDF sheet music =
Load the app with your own PDF sheet music from Google Drive, Dropbox or share your PDF scores with other app users by email.

= Perform Like A Pro =
Best-in-class performance mode: full screen score with unobtrusive controls so you can concentrate on what matters — your performance. The app will even flip the pages of a score or a guitar tab for you automatically, or you can do so manually by simply swiping the screen.

= Cloud-based Sync =
Whether you buy sheet music using our iPad app or directly from our website, your library will be in sync everywhere — including all your previous purchases. You can also log into the app using your existing account and all your previous purchases will be automatically downloaded to your iPad.

= Search Anywhere =
Search is at the heart of music discovery in the app. Use it to quickly find scores in the Store and narrow the results down to an instrument or arrangement. For instance, if you search for "The Beatles" you'll be able to select just guitar tabs, piano sheet music, and so on.

**AirTurn support for hands-free page turning**

Pros and cons

It's great for instant buying and access to fairly good sheet music (mostly basic playing/easy piano) but the HUGE downside is that you cannot save anything offline, or download for offline later, or print once you've bought. The only way you can access the music you've bought is by constantly being on WiFi. Sometimes, even if you're on WiFi and close the app and reopen it, you'll find that your library is lost and have to then sign out and sign back in to reload your library. Would love to use this for my professional gigs full time but it's a huge hassle every time I get to a gig and lose my library.

Bugs - please fix

Great app but so many bugs it's difficult not to go back to a paper score and stick with it.
1. Sound disappears until the tuning fork is tapped then untapped, then you lose your place and have to start again.
2. When score is expanded to read a note then pinched back, however carefully, the screen disappears.
3. Cannot choose just the base or just the treble clef (to practise left or right hand).
Please fix this could be such a good bit of kit.

More expensive than website

This is a great app and I've used it with no issues for ages. But be warned. I've just noticed the prices have shot up from £2.99 to £3.99. This only affects the app. The website prices are still £2.99. Totally unfair for the app users. It's pretty much a 50% price rise which isn't justified for a download. If anything the website should cost more given that it provides a downloadable, printable version while the app doesn't. Disappointed.
