When singing in a choir, keeping the many sheets of music you may receive organised can be a real task. However, with the help of stationery products such as plastic document wallets and A4 ring binders, it can be a simple and beneficial thing to do.
Your choir conductor should give you an A4 ring binder to keep your music organised, however if they don’t, buying a choir folder can be a great thing to do. Once you have the folder and music ready, it can be beneficial to place all the music in order (if doing a show, organising the music according to the set list is another good idea) and then place every sheet in a plastic document wallet. Placing adjacent sheets back to back can be advantageous as it means less space is used and two sheets can fit into one wallet.
Your music folder can be personalised to look more unique and identifiable to you by using pictures or stickers. Something appropriate to the contents of the folder can be stuck on, such as pictures of music notes and staves. This can make your folder stand out and be the more interesting out of your fellow choir singers—they may even follow suit!
If performing in a concert as a musician, it can be irritating when individual sheets of music fall of your music stand whilst attempting to turn pages—especially when performing! Keeping your music in an A4 ring binder can take away this problem, as your music will all be in one place and kept together by rings in the spine.
If singing in a small choir or playing in a small band, it could be that you have the only copy of your part. It can be good to have online copies of the music you are playing or singing, in case the worst happens and a sheet (or the entire thing) is lost. Keeping this information on a USB stick or external hard drive can provide an extra sense of peace of mind, knowing that losing your part won’t be the death to the show!
Performing music is a great thing to do and can provide lots of fun and entertainment for everyone involved, and keeping the music you play or sing organised is a small investment in having the community spirit of a choir or orchestra and playing music that satisfies the self and the audience.
