Keeping the Music Organized

Introducing… One of the best purchases we have ever made…

We bought this with some wedding money when we were first married,
and I will be forever glad that we did.
We’d never be able to afford it now!
Anyway, my husband is pretty particular with keeping it nice,
(I think because it was so much money) and doesn’t let me keep much on top of the piano.
(This is also humerous because he doesn’t play it!)
Here are a couple ways that I keep my music organized:
In the past I used to punch holes in my sheet music and put it in a 3-ring binder.
But since then I discovered putting the music in plastic sheet covers.
The plastics not only protect the pages, but they make for slick page turns!
I got this book for Christmas, but I haven’t played it much because it was so hard to keep open.
So I took it in to a local copy store, and solved the problem for just two dollars!
It works great!  I think I’ll play out of this book much more often now!
So, I try to keep most of my music in the piano bench, but I found another solution for the rest.
I keep them in a tote on the floor by the piano.  Works great!
So now the music stays more organized, the piano stays nice, and the husband stays happy.

    Great idea Ashlee. I love it! I especially love how you went and got your book spiral bound! What a fantastic idea for only $2. WOW! However, I just wanted to say enjoy having all your music put away because when you have a few kids who play as well…it seems to be a bit more of a challenge. 🙂 I’m glad they’ll play though, so I guess that is what matters!

    I have so many binder/sheet protectors (though I always seem to be running out ha)and recommend them to my students. I love your spiral bound book. I’m glad there was enough margin space that you didn’t lose any of the music! I also had my music in a bin but recently got a narrow bookshelf that sits right next to my piano.
