We all know the stress of timing the perfect page turns in the middle of a 12-page piece, hearing the deafening SWOOSH of paper as we panic to quickly find our spot on the next page. Over the years, this task has become significantly easier thanks to having sheet music available on an iPad. Still, you need to lift your hands off of your instrument to swipe to the next page, which requires careful planning and concentration.

So, what if you could turn to the next page hands-free? Though relatively new on the music scene, hands-free page turners are beginning to make their mark in the world of sheet music. To help you find the best product for you, we’ve put together a list of the 3 best hands-free page turners!
