Rehearsal Tools

Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc. is now offering a range of tools to assist directors and choreographers with the rehearsal process.  The Tams Rehearsal Aid, the Tams Rehearsal CD, and Cast Albums are all great ways to prepare for the presentation of a musical from the Tams-Witmark library.  The rehearsal tools are for rehearsal and perusal purposes only and may not be used for performance.*

*[UPDATE] The Tams Rehearsal Aid is now available for both your rehearsals and performances of The Wizard of Oz (RSC)

Tams Rehearsal Aid

The Tams Rehearsal Aid is customized rehearsal software that allows you to rehearse the complete show using your computer, thus lifting some of the strain on (or even replacing) your rehearsal pianist. In addition, it is an invaluable help in choreographing and rehearsing dances, either by slowing down the speed of the music, or by repeating trouble spots.

Since percussion and bass are included in the playback, dances can be rehearsed giving special attention to timing and rhythmic vigor. Voice tracks can be played back in case your singers need support. The entire piano score, complete with vocal material and lyrics, is displayed on the computer screen as it plays back.

In addition to standard playback, Tams Rehearsal Aid offers user-controlled playback. Playback can be shaped to fit your rehearsal needs at any moment, seamlessly switching between the two playback modes whenever you feel like it. Internal cuts or repeats are easily marked for playback and may be saved for later use. Tams Rehearsal Aid is shipped with easy-to-follow installation instructions, a brief tutorial to get you started, and a detailed, built-in reference manual.
