An Introduction to Viewing Lyrics and Chords with PCO Music Stand Android

Planning Center Music Stand is an app for iPad and Android devices that connects directly to your PCO Services account to let you view your lyric sheet & chord chart PDFs. Open Music Stand, select one of your dates, and view your PDFs in a digital songbook! Click here to download the Android app (The latest version requires Android 3.4 and up)

Option 1. Create Lyric Sheets and Chord Charts From Within PCO Services

  • Music Stand is designed to download PDFs with any lyrics and chords you add into the Lyrics & Chords Editor on your song's "Arrangment" page in PCO Services.
  • If you already use this feature to create chord charts, you've already done 100% of the work to create a lyrics sheet, because PCO Services will simply create a sheet that strips out the chords to instantly create a lyric-only PDF for you.

NOTE: If your lyrics or chords are currently in a doc file, Music Stand will not support that format (PDF only). However, you can copy + paste them into the editor.

Option 2. Upload PDF files of your Lyrics and Chord Charts

Since Music Stand is a PDF-reader app, you can also use any PDF files that are attached to a Key in your Song Arrangement pages, and when you load your plan in Music Stand, the app will download those PDF files for you to view. This includes files you have uploaded, or imported from SongSelect or PraiseCharts.
