If you are a part of a band, or a music institute, or you play an instrument and use sheet music .... or maybe you are in a choir ... then it is necessary that you have a system for organizing your music.

1. Sort Through All Of Your Music  

Take a big garbage bag and toss sheets you are sure you will never need (If you want to be 100% certain, check with your teacher!).  The remaining sheets should be organized into neat piles.

If you haven't used the music in a year or more, it's probably time to toss it.  

If you think you might use the music, but not for awhile, stick it in a binder and put it in a shelf, labelled.

2. Choose a Method for organizing current music

The Binder Method~ Slip your sheets into labelled binders (Classical, Country, Quartet, etc.).  

The Duotang Method~ Same idea as the binder method, only many people find duotangs much easier to carry around.

 

3. Choose a Method for organizing past music

In a Filing Box~ This is the best way to do this.  Simply stick your old music sheets into a filing box. Something like this could fit under a bed.

A Hanging Closet Organizer~ Another fun way is to purchase a small hanging closet organizer (check IKEA) and stick your papers in it.  A fun way to get organized! 

 

4. Every 6 months go through your music

Keep what you want to keep, throw away what you no longer need, and reorganize it to get it under control again.
