Downloading and reading pdf scores on an iPad

Success! I’ve worked out how to open a pdf score on my school’s iPads! I’m such a music nerd. It has bothered me for so long that you can’t do horizontal scrolling (like turning to pages of a book) in a pdf reader, so with an iPad I can finally do it!! Here’s some steps to help you.

1. Go to and download a score onto your iPad. (Nothing too long or it will take forever to load.)

2. Once it loads it will come up on your screen. Tap the screen once and a menu bar will open that says ‘open in iBook’. Click that button.

3. Have fun reading your score!

Super easy. I’m totally going to use this tool with my grade 11 Music class on Monday.
