SA Open Call--Sheet Music#1
Posted: 3/30/08 at 12:43pm
Ok, need to call upon the experts again...

As of today, my daughter's still planning to audition and has chosen her song...Relient K's "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been."

We printed out the sheet music from musicnotes.com and since we now have ten separate pages of sheet music, do the accompanists care if it's separate pages or should we tape/attach/staple them all together?

Sounds assinine, I know, but this is our first time...be gentle.

make sure she only has sixteen bars cus that is all they want. If that goes over to a second page I would recommend taping them to each side of a manila folder so that when you open it up you have both pages there and easy to read without having to fumble with flipping pages and what not. Also clearly mark the 16 bars using brackets [ ] so they know where the beginning is and where the end is. If the 16 bars is on three pages then tape the third on another piece of manila folder and make a fold out so that all three pages are still out and right next to each other. Sorry if this is really confusing and complicated but its a simple little thing to make the accompanists alittle easier to work with. Hope your daughter breaks a leg at her audition!!!

It DOES sound complicated, but she's going to bring it into one of the music teachers at school and/or ask one of her friends to help her.

We've got two weeks so we should be able to figure it out.

Thanks SO much for your help..I love the manila folder idea. The only thing she's a tiny bit bothered by is the fact that she prefers the acoustic version of the song but the only sheet music goes with the more uptempto version.
