 Re: binding loose pages

If you want to use a 3 ring binder but are worried about pages tearing, consider using sheet protectors. They are those clear flexible sleeves that you slide your paper in and along the edge there is already the 3 hole punch. Makes your music much more durable and secure. Should be able to pick them up from a local office supply store.

Two downsides: depending on what kind you get, glare can be annoying and if you need to mark up your music you'll either need a wax pencil or get used to pulling them in and out of the pocket. Neither are a deal breaker, just something you should know.

When I have larger documents to bind I use a plastic coil binding machine. Got sick of trying to staple +20 pages of college reading and bought my own binding machine. I prefer spiral over comb because the spiral will always lie flat on the music stand and you can even fold it over if you like. Combs can be finicky with laying open all the way.
