Class Description
Session 1
12:15 to 1:15 PM

    Tired of dragging bags and carts of paper around
    with you at music events?

    Frustrated by stacks and binders filled with paper sheet music and tablature?
    Own an android Tablet or Smart Phone? This class could be for you.
    In this class we will discuss the basic concepts of copying and storing your
    sheet music electronically (Windows PC, Android tablets). We will also learn
    basic use of an app called Mobile Sheets Pro. Using this app you will learn
    various ways to import music to your device, title and label the music for
    ease in locating it, quickly find and display your music to play from.
    Mobile Sheets Pro will make ALL your tablature and sheet music available to
    you ANYWHERE with only a couple swipes of your finger. You can also get
    to your chord charts, cheat sheets and lyric sheets just as easily. Please note
    that I have no affiliation with Mobile Sheets but have been using it since
    Though this class will be specific to and demonstrate using android based
    tablets the concepts could be useful to iOS users. There are apps of this
    nature available for iOS as well but we will not cover those.
    Requirements: Curious observers are welcome but to get the most of this
    class you should have an android tablet and be comfortable with basic use of
    your tablet including turning it on and connecting with the internet as well as
    finding and maneuvering between applications. You should also have
    purchased and downloaded Mobile Sheets Pro ($14.99) from either the
    Google Play Store or Mobile Sheets Website.

Donna Malus

            Originally from Chicago, Donna Malus is now retired
    and happily living in a small cabin on 11 acres in S.E.
    Ohio. Her love for folk, traditional and classical music
    began in her elementary school years and continued
    through her adult life; she has dabbled in playing a
    variety of musical instruments since then as well.   
    In spring of 2009 Donna discovered the bowed psaltery
    and has been playing it ever since. In fall of 2009,
    motivated by her desire to promote the bowed psaltery,
    Donna created “Psaltery Strings” a website dedicated
    to the bowed psaltery and continues to host the site
    to date. In 2012 Donna published a book of traditional
    music for bowed psaltery and other melody
    instruments. Donna taught beginning bowed psaltery
    classes for several years at the annual Gebhard
    Woods Dulcimer and Traditional Music Festival in
    Morris, Illinois.  Donna’s passions beyond music are
    graphic art, computer technology, audio/video technology,
    fiber arts, beekeeping and animals of every kind!
