Preparing a Piano Reduction of a Score
With Musician, you can quickly prepare a piano reduction of an instrument ensemble or choral score.
There are many uses for piano reductions of scores:
|For your own enjoyment, transcribe an instrumental or choral piece so that you can play it on your keyboard.
|If you lead an instrument or choral group and have piano skills, convey your musical ideas to your group by playing the score reduction on a piano or keyboard.
|If you compose, prepare the reduction as a "digest" of your score that a conductor can easily review.
To prepare a piano reduction of an instrumental or choral score:
|Use the Prepare Piano Reduction command in the Parts menu. Select the instrument and vocal parts you wish to merge into a piano reduction part.
|If this newly created piano reduction has too many notes, delete the extra, unnecessary notes.
|If you want to play a note in the right or left hand instead of the other, select it, and type SHIFT+ or SHIFT+.
