About Digital Sheet Music | Help

Digital Sheet Music is music that you can view, interact with, and print out straight from your web browser. We have over 100,000 scores available at Musicroom in this format, and each one has been arranged to publisher-standard quality. For scores that support it you can:

  • see a preview of the first page of the sheet music on the product page before you buy.
  • transpose the score into a different key.
  • hear an audio playback of the music.
  • print the music on your printer. 
  • sync and store it on your iPad if you get the Musicroom Digital App.

You can view our range of digital sheet music on virtually any device running a standard, modern web browser. 

  • To access your music after purchase, you will need an internet connection. Digital Sheet Music is not stored on your computer or device, unless you use the Musicroom Digital iPad app.
  • A connected printer, if you wish to print out the score.

The Avid viewer is a new technology that enables the viewing and printing of scores online without needing to install any additional software, such as Scorch. All scores available at Musicroom are available with the Avid Viewer.

The Avid viewer is available for all web browsers. Unless you are using Internet Explorer 11 or below, it is the only option available.

The Avid viewer requires no installation - the score will load as part of the digital sheet music product detail page. You can see an example by visiting the digital version of Ed Sheeran's Castle on the Hill.

Sibelius Scorch is an internet plugin that requires installation in order to display digital sheet music. 

Scorch is being replaced with the new Avid viewer, which provides more features and does not require a web browser plugin to be installed to use it.

Scorch is only available if you are using Internet Explorer 11 or lower. All other browsers use the new Avid viewer.

If you still need to install Scorch, you can read how to on the Installing Scorch page.
