Alyssa, I'm not the original person posting this question, but found your post interesting, can you tell me how to access the audio music scores on bard?

Also, if you use bard provided by NLS, there are audio music scores. Here's
another thought. Is playing by ear an option? I play the piano, the violin, and
sing this way. I was exposed to Braille music but found it rather tedious and a
bit random. Many of the notes don't seem to follow any sort of pattern. Just
