Other Uses for Blank Music Sheets

Sheet music paper has myriad uses.  Here are a few ideas.

Practice writing and counting rhythms

There may be times when you doodle.  On the phone, watching a program, etc.  During this time, write rhythms for fun. You can choose a number of beats per measure, and practice combining notes that makes up that total.  Then you can clap/tap and count them if you like.  This is such good practice.

Practice your music theory

If you are currently learning the names of notes, you can write a crop of dots and then name them.  Imagine where on the guitar you could play them.  This is mental practice, or visualizing.  It's very effective at speeding up your reading music.

Label chords

Write 3 or more notes as a stack, then see if you can figure out what chord they make.   To do this, you'll need to know a little music theory.  But if you are at this stage in your learning, it is a wonderful practice.  Like solving a puzzle.

Write out your pieces

If you are memorizing a piece of music, see if you can write it out from memory.  This will challenge your visual memory and understanding of your music.  Your musical memory will soar.

Music paper as wrapping paper

Make gifts stylish and unique by wrapping them in notation paper.  You can even print it in different colors if you like.

Note paper and stationery

People love getting notes on music paper.  It makes them feel like they have entered a creative world of artists and composers. To write on music paper, just ignore the lines, or write on the bias (slanted).  Use a colored pen to increase the contrast.

Anything else you can think of

Music sheets are great for anything you can think of.  You can use them for many elements of practice away from the guitar.  And you can substitute them for anything else you use paper for. Let your imagination run with it and bring more music to your daily life.

Allen Mathews

Hi, I’m Allen Mathews. 

I started as a folk guitarist, then fell in love with classical guitar in my 20’s. Despite a lot of practice and schooling, I still couldn’t get my music to flow well. I struggled with excess tension. My music sounded forced. And my hands and body were often sore. I got frustrated, and couldn’t see the way forward. Then, over the next decade, I studied with two other stellar teachers – one focused on the technical movements, and one on the musical (he was a concert pianist). In time, I came to discover a new set of formulas and movements. These brought new life and vitality to my practice. Now I help guitarists find more comfort and flow in their music, so they play more beautifully.
