Sound advice if you put off practicing can be found here!
 
Playing different types of music files:

  • mp3 can be played directly, or downloaded and copied to other devices.

  • midi files (.mid) can be played directly, but will usually sound awful.  You can obtain players for them that allow you to change the instruments used, the volume of each instrument, and the playback tempo.  

 

ChoirPro's Sonja is a good player for IPad's.   This link shows how to install.

 

  • Sibelius scorch files require a player that is available on Windows, Mac OSX.

 

Scorch player download.

 

Sometimes we rehearse with the orchestra at Christ Church Hall, Hawthorn:
