Please Note: The Musicnotes Viewer for iOS app is considered legacy software; it will not receive any future software updates. This article has been retained for resource purposes only.
You may continue to use the app, however as time progresses, you may experience more and more frequent issues when using the legacy app to access your purchased music.
Additionally, this legacy app will be unable to access newer product types that may have been purchased under your Musicnotes account.
For the best digital sheet music experience, we recommend either:
When you first launch the Musicnotes app, you will be prompted to log in to your Musicnotes.com account. You must be logged into your account to view and play the music that you have purchased.
When you log in, you will be prompted to import all of your songs. You may also choose not to do so in order to selectively import songs later. If you choose to select your songs now, you will be taken directly to the import selection screen. (Please see the Import Your Sheet Music and Manage Your Sheet Music Library topics for more information).
If you choose not to log in, you will enter the app as a Guest User, and will have only a small selection of free songs available to you. You may still choose to sign in at any time. To log in, change the signed in user, or to log out, go to the Settings section. (Please see the Options and Settings topic for detailed instructions.)
The app will remember the last person who was logged in, so if you are the only user of this app on your device you will not need to log in again.
After the initial login prompts, you will see the My Sheet Music section. This section contains three tabs: All Songs, Folders, and Set Lists. The All Songs tab is discussed below. Folders and Set Lists are covered in the Organize Your Library (Folders and Setlists) topic.
To switch to another section of the app, such as Settings or Manage Sheet Music, use the left slide-out menu. You can open the left slide-out menu by swiping it onto the screen from the left or by tapping the “Menu” button at the top left. You can close the left slide-out menu by selecting an option or by tapping back into the current section.
When the All Songs tab is selected, all of the sheet music you've purchased and imported onto your device is accessible.
To view a piece of music, tap its row in the list to open it in viewing mode. (Please see the View Your Music topic for more information.)
You may search for a particular piece you have downloaded by using the "Search" field at the top of the list.
You can tap the menu button on each row or swipe a row to the left to reveal the song's swipe menu. Tap or swipe it back to close the menu.
In the swipe menu, you will be able to do the following:
- The "Add" button will show a dialog that will allow you to add this song to multiple folders or set lists. You may learn more about folders and set lists in the Organize Your Library (Folders and Setlists) topic.
Choose "Folder(s)" or "Set List(s)" option at the top to display them in the list.
Select the folders or set lists you would like to add this song to then tap the "Add" button.
This popup also allows you to create a new folder or set list by tapping the first row in the list.
Type a unique name into the edit box that appears, then tap "Submit."
The "Remove" button will remove this song from your device. You may import it again later if you want by using the Manage Sheet Music section. You may learn more about importing in the Manage and Import Sheet Music topic.
- The "Info" button will display a popup with more information about the piece.
