How to use spare books
« on: August 31, 2020, 01:06:31 PM »
Hi fellow musicians!



I need some advice since I have millions of blank empty books with me and Iím wondering what to use them as related to the piano.

I already have one as a practice log so Iíll need suggestions other than that.
Thanks in advance!

Good question.  I also have many many notebooks and other notepads around.

For music? 

All I can think of is creating set lists, and multiple sets arranged by season (tunes that other people might like that don't make you want to hurl, i.e., you can play them).

I also like to arrange various pieces and movements according to what key they're in.

Annotated discographies for various works or composers, in case you need to reconstruct your library of music.

Comprehensive bibliography of articles and books of music analysis, and of music theory.

Also, comprehensive fingering schemata for various odd scales.

You could do a search for what some avant-garde composers called "listening scores."

Schenkerian analysis.

Roman Numeral Analysis.

I don't know that any of those would fill up a notebook, but you can never have too much paper.
