For more than a decade now, Watchfire Music has been working with Composers and Publishers to offer a range of Study Tools for each Digital Sheet Music (DSM) title on watchfiremusic.com. We now offer these Study Tools for 90% of our DSM titles.
Why provide these? Sheet Music isn’t always enough! To aid you in your work, we offer Study Tools just for you — the emerging 21st century church musician who, very often, has trained classically, but find yourself needing to broaden and expand your repertoire for the modern church congregation.
So … What are Study Tools?
They are Tools for your ears as well as for your eyes.
We offer 3 kinds: Study Tracks, Accompaniment Tracks, and Studio Tracks.
A Study Track is a single mp3 recording of a Digital Sheet Music title. It is a recording of the instrumental accompaniment (usually keyboard, piano or organ) and it also employs a different instrument (rhodes piano, flute, clarinet, etc.) to play the vocal line.
An Accompaniment Track is a single mp3 recording of the instrumental accompaniment (usually keyboard, piano or organ) of a Digital Sheet Music title. Accompaniment Tracks are intended for your rehearsal and performance use.
A Studio Track is a professionally recorded performance of a Digital Sheet Music title by professional musicians in a recording studio. Studio Tracks are available as single mp3 downloads and are often part of a recording artist’s full album.
