Kindle Sheet Music

I’ve been seriously lusting after the Kindle DX as soon as it was announced mainly for use as a reference tool. The shelves of programming reference books (Python, Java, Oracle, etc.) lends itself well to the small, light form-factor and the search capabilities of the Kindle DX. Being able to load PDFs natively onto the DX opened another door of possibility for me in terms of sheet music. I have tons of scanned music in PDF form I’ve collected over the years that could conceivably be loaded onto the Kindle. No more death warrants for trees whenever I have a wedding gig, right?

Apparently Amazon.com is telepathically linked to my brain. There is now a Kindle Sheet Music store at Amazon.com. The Kindle DX is now one-step away from being a no-brainer purchase. My fate will be sealed when urtext editions of my favorite composers’ works are available.

There’s a short video review at ireaderreview.com. The reviewer downloaded some music to his Kindle 2 (not a DX):

The sheet music will obviously be better suited to the Kindle DX (all copies of Sheet Music have an Optimized for Kindle DX tag).

Thanks for the tip, Angelo!

  2. Can you tell me whether songs can be arranged by sets, so that I can use the same song in different sets? For example I might want to use “Yesterday” in a set of Beatles songs and again in a set of songs in C major.

  3. As far as I can tell from playing with my friend’s Kindle DX there’s no user-created organization system. That could be remedied by firmware, though, if Amazon so chooses. Also, Amazon released a software dev kit so users can create their own software for the Kindle. That should be pretty interesting.
