Digital Sheet Music Online

Boot Camp feature for Monday, March 6, 2000

Digital sheet music you can download. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. The musician in your house will love this one. A Web site called musicnotes.com is using some great technology to sell sheet music in a digital format... .

"That can be heard, seen, interacted with and purchased and printed on an individual's home printer."

Kathleen Marsh of Musicnotes.com. Download the site's Multimedia Plus player... .and you can see the music on screen... with the notes highlighted as they play. Why it's almost supernatural... (sound) It's a music store open worldwide... . 24 hours a day.

"We have a growing library of digital music that can be delivered instantly. And if it's not available in digital form, we also sell the standard print products that can be shipped over through mail order. And we have a very elaborate search engine that allows an individual to come on the site and type in the title, the composer, the artist. If they don't know any of that, they can even type in a few pieces of the lyrics... the first few phrases."

The digital sheet music can even synchronize with CD music tracks. The site again, Musicnotes.com.
