Just think of this the next time you decide NOT to memorize your music.
Wow it’s like the Marauder’s Map! 😀
I love how relevant this is to my current situation. We’re playing a song that is 8 pages long. During those 8 pages, there is only once measure where we have enough rests to turn the page without interruption. Since the part is divided and there are only two cellos to play it, neither of us can drop out. We both came up with a way of taping the pages together so that it only requires one page turn for the entire piece. It does take up two music stands, but we didn’t have to build a custom one lol.
I’m a cellist too – it seems so much harder to turn pages as a cellist – at least violins/violas can use their scrolls to turn a page! lol – my friend’s sister had to do that during her senior recital because she didn’t have enough rests to turn the page.
I play a piece of music in big band that has a 5th trombone part with important lines. I have diagram on the first page to explain how to best arrange the 6 pages, and when to turn. It’s fairly effective, though everyone else is thoroughly confused.
