Portal page of the International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP). “We at the IMSLP believe that music should be something that is easily accessible for everyone. For this purpose we have created a music library to provide music scores free of charge to anyone with internet access, with several other projects in planning. IMSLP is also entirely collaborative, and all contributions are greatly welcome.”

Amazing resource of free sheet music — includes many early edition scores.  

Cleartune (see link below) was my tuner app of choice for many years, and a fine app it is!  But the newer “Tunable” at the above link has a somewhat more useful interface that is wonderful for practicing vibrato consistency because it graphs pitch over time.  The app also has a variety of other helpful practice tools.

“Cleartune is a chromatic instrument tuner and pitch pipe that allows you to quickly and accurately tune up using the built-in mic in your iPhone, iPod Touch or Android device. Cleartune features a unique “note wheel” interface allowing you to quickly find your pitch, paired with a highly responsive fine-tuning meter for the perfect tune. Don’t let its clean design and simple interface fool you. With support for custom temperaments, transposition, notations such as solfège, adjustable calibration and more, Cleartune packs enough power for the pro, yet is simple enough for everyone to use. Cleartune can tune acoustic or electric guitar, bass, bowed strings, woodwinds, brass, piano and any other instrument that can sustain a tone.”
