Tomplay sheet music is an app designed to make playing along with accompanied music easy. Complete with a wide range of styles of saxophone sheet music to choose from, the app allows users to interact with sheet music from home or on the go without the hassle of trying to keep track of countless pages of sheet music.
One of the most valuable features of the app is the play-along function. Unlike other apps that employ midi or electronic accompaniment, Tomplay has thousands of live recordings to choose from. The selection includes music from Aretha Franklin, John Legend, U2, and many others to play along with. There are thousands of recordings to choose from, all at your fingertips.
Tomplay is an excellent app for any level of proficiency. The tempo adjustment feature allows the user to change the piece’s tempo without interfering with the original sound quality of the recording. This can greatly benefit anyone looking to learn a piece at a slow tempo. Another practice tool in the app allows you to select a number of measures to loop and put on repeat until you feel like you have mastered that section.
Additionally, the app interface allows saxophone players to annotate their sheet music in a variety of ways. By drawing, writing text, and adding musical symbols, you can quickly and easily make any adjustments to the music you are working on as if you were using a physical copy. Use the delete button to make changes as you go to erase breath marks or phrase markings at any time and even transpose the piece into another key with the click of a button.
Using Tomplay With Students
For any teacher, this app is a great way to help students feel motivated to practice. In addition to using traditional method books and solo pieces, students will feel excited about playing along with their favorite jazz, pop, and indie tunes. Students can practice learning music by ear, playing with good intonation, and developing a solid sense of tempo through the different features in the app. Students can even record themselves playing along with a piece and bring it to their next lesson using the record function.
This app was developed to work for musicians during the pandemic and will likely continue to benefit musicians for years to come. With the regular addition of new pieces and recordings to explore, Tomplay will surely pay itself off.
