In existing applications, those who train and perform in classical music use tablet PC's and LCD display systems to view digitized music files from PDFs. Past software programs have allowed composers to edit music composition and recompose notes. Present products and other speculative projects gave users the option to tune instruments and hook up to studio electronic systems for recordings. Also, these projected musicians won't have to be present together they can do live rehearsals and jam sessions over digital networks.
This musical e-book extracts takes these precedent ideas of music technology by hybridizing viewing digital musical compositions with note taking done in a class setting. Also, for playing instruments, the focus is simple recordings taken by the e-book that can be easily made into files to be shared with social networks.
