I‘ve finally made enough progress reading music to play drumkit in a brass band, albeit as an improver.

One problem area is some of the sheet music that dates from the ‘30s or even before. Some of it is easily-enough solved. For example, it didn’t take very long to work out what some of the old notation meant, such as the now-superseded crotchet-rest symbol. Also, although some of the printing is tiny and difficult to read, that is soon solved by enlarging it on a scanner or photocopier. The real bugbear is the music that has separate sheets for different drums and other components. It seems to be a case either of reading the snare drum part and memorising or making-up the rest or using a pen and Tippex to add the rest to the side drum sheet. I know there's also music manuscript software that could be used to rewrite the parts onto a single sheet.

Assuming that I am not the first to come across this problem, I wondered how others had tackled it.
