How to Use This Website

Are you in a hurry and confused by the layout on this site?

Are you thinking, "There is LOTS of music here... but how do I download it?"

Don't take screenshots - find the PDF

How to use this website picture

Below every sheet music image is a reminder that the pdf link for the music is farther down the page.  I don't put the links below the graphics - or, VERY RARELY.

In fact, all the links will be grouped together, like this, after all the different versions of a piece have been shown:

Picture of pdf links to sheet music

First, all versions of a piece are shown

I like to present each arrangement as we move down the page:

A piano sheet music example

That's the first sheet music shown on this page of Eensy Weensy Spider.

The second arrangement of the song

A music sheet example

And a third arrangement:

Piano sheet music for Eensy Weensy Spider

As you can see, each version is a bit different.

This is an educational website!

Therefore, in my discussion of a piece, I may link to another page on my site with similar features, or even to other websites.  Those links are in bold blue text:

So scroll on down the page

Not only are the pdfs far superior to any screen image, but in many cases, the examples shown are just one key out of several keys offered. 

Additionally, fussing with screenshots is a bit of work, and time-consuming.  PDFs are easy, and beautiful.  Just take an extra moment and look down the page!

Here are what those pdf links look like, again:

If you see this...

You have scrolled too far

then you've scrolled down just a bit too far, beyond the sheet music links at the page bottom.  Back up!

So, good luck!  Questions? Contact me!
