The iPad is helping shift how musicians approach their sheet music. Where once it was necessary to carry around large collection of scores from a myriad of pieces, it's now possible to carry your entire repertoire around in a single tablet. Instead of graphite, wood, and rubber, musicians now use Pencils made of plastic and silicon, made for touch screens rather than paper.
From The New York Times:
But it's not just in ease of use where digital tools are proving their value. Musicians are now increasingly able to read their music from digital versions of their original manuscripts. And because of this, more musicians are getting to see and study the original scores, connecting them more to the history of a work.
