About Interactive Sheet Music
What is Interactive Sheet Music?

Interactive sheet music allows you to interact with sheet music online such as transpose the music, change the instruments, play the music, change the playback tempo and more. VSM Interactive Sheet Music uses Scorch technology. Scorch is a web browser plug-in by Sibelius software which allows the display of interactive sheet music within any web browser. Such displayed music can then be played, transposed, and printed without the installation of any additional software.

Hal Leonard's music uses a HTML 5 compatible system that is compatible with any computer, tablet and smart phone devices.
