Annotate your music
Annotate your music using tools to draw, highlight, add sticky notes, musical notation, fingering, bowing, performance marks, bar numbers for quick navigation and much more.
In large pieces of music or a score with many pages, Power Music’s Performance Marks and Bar Numbers allow instant navigation to any page or part of the piece of music. This feature is especially important and useful for orchestral players and accompanists during rehearsals.
Add performance notes
At a practice or rehearsal, add a performance note to a piece of music as a reminder. Use for organ registrations, intros and play order etc.

At the click of a button send songs and playlists up to “My Box”. Then securely download from My Box into other PCs, Macs or iPads running Power Music.
Buy songs in Power Music format
To save you the time of importing or scanning your music into Power Music, we have set up a on-line music shop called Power Music Store. All the songs you buy from Power Music Store become available in your Power Music Box account (free account available). For more information, visit powermusicstore.com.

As well as tagging, indexing and referencing your music, you can add web or social network links to all your songs. Clicking on an icon takes you to the artist’s Facebook page, Twitter feed, YouTube video, iTunes song, or any other link you choose.
Organise music into libraries
If you play in different bands or play different instruments or teach different music courses, you can organise your music into Libraries to make searching and displaying your music simple.
The Parts feature allows you to store multiple versions of a score in the one song then select the part you want to use. Parts could be for scores for different instruments or versions of the song in different keys.
Linked audio track
Every song in Power Music can have an audio track linked to it. This can be used to play a backing track or simply as a help when practising. The audio track can be set to auto-play as soon as a song is selected from the playlist, or it can be played using a key press or a mouse click. The mini-player allows playback control and volume adjustment.
Features for visually impaired musicians
Power Music has been hailed as the greatest tool for VI musicians. Recommended by the RNIB and overseas VI organisations, Power Music has brought new life to musicians who thought their days of reading music were over. Enlarged music and configurable colours have made reading music possible for VI musicians all over the world.
One of Power Music’s unique features is the melody search. If you know the melody to a song, by simply noting if the next note in the melody is the same (s) as the last note, or higher (u) or lower (l), for the first 8 notes then you can find the song! For example, entering “udduudd” will find Silent Night.
Guitar tuner and metronome
Visual or audio metronome which can appear automatically or by key press. A tempo can be set for each song. The guitar tuner sounds the note for each string for tuning purposes.
