I just created a video tutorial on one of my favorite new features introduced in forScore 5: tabbed viewing of scores.  The tutorial also covers the Quick Peek feature which shows you an thumbnail preview image of the score before you open it.

(If you’re new to forScore or this blog, or if you’re just curious about what it’s like to work with sheet music on an iPad/tablet, check out my series of forScore tutorials at .)

Here’s a tutorial on how to create and use bookmarks in forScore.  (One bookmark tip I forgot to mention in the tutorial: If you email/share a score as .4SC file, its bookmarks will be included and the recipient will see them when they import the score into their iPad.  Thanks to Chris Russel at Technology in Music Education for tipping me off about that.)

Here’s a tutorial on where to find extra stamps on the web for music annotation and how to download and import them into forScore‘s stamp library.

Note that this same import method will work for stamps you create yourself.  Just create a 48×48 or 96×96 PNG image file that you want to use as a stamp, and then follow the tutorial steps from the iTunes step onward.

Download extra stamp libraries from: (at the bottom,  under “Misc”)  Some are of special interest to singers, like stamps for breath marks and IPA.
