Setting Up a New Music Stand Account

Created on:
Updated on:

Welcome to Music Stand! Once you've enabled the app, we'll help you set up your Music Stand account by showing you how to open a plan, make and share notes on chord charts, sync page turns, and use Music Stand on the web if you don't have a mobile device.

The mobile app requires Android 3.2 and up.

Download Music Stand from the Google Play Store, and sign in using your Services login.

The Music Stand app has a dashboard, holding your schedule and all plans. Tap a plan to view it, or to see all plans, tap Browse All Plans.

Follow the Order of Service

The plan is laid out as it's shown in Services.

  1. Boxed information is the Item Description.
  2. Items with attached PDF files show a dropdown.
  3. Depending on your permissions, you could add to the plan.

Tap an item to view the chord chart then swipe, tap, or use a foot pedal to go to the next chord chart.

Share Notes With Team Members

Tap the screen to open the toolbar. Loop a section on the attached track, utilize the metronome, or make notes on the chord chart.

Tap the pencil to open the annotations toolbar.

Write notes, highlight sections, erase notes, or type using the tools. Choose Done to save your notes.

A teammate can choose to view your annotations and even combine yours with theirs!

Tap the person at the top left of the chord chart and choose whose annotations you'd like to view.


Sessions allow team members to sync page turns with one person in control of changing the pages.

From the menu, choose Sessions to start or connect to a session.

1. Control a Session

When you start a session, you'll see a green Music Stand header as well as a list of those who have joined your session.

The green header is shown on the device of the person controlling the page turns.

Close the session at any time.

2. Join a Session

To join a session instead of starting one, tap Connect to a Session, and then choose the session available.

When you connect to a session, your Music Stand header turns red, and you'll see the same pages as the device in control.

Music Stand on the Web

If you don't have a mobile device but still want to use Music Stand, hover over rehears ein any plan and choose Music Stand to launch Web Music Stand.

Music Stand will load and open the first available chord chart in the plan.

Use the toolbar at the bottom to return to the plan, go to the next song, make notes, or adjust settings. The down arrow icon hides the toolbar, so you can see the whole screen.

Once you've familiarized yourself with that flow, you're ready for your first rehearsal! Email other team members notifying them of Music Stand!
