Why Do We Need to Write Programme Notes?
By having a programme notes for audiences, musicians or MC (emcee), musicians do not need to verbally announced or explain about each music compositions that the musicians will be performing.
This may interrupt the flow of the music performances and spoiled the audiences’ listening enjoyment.
Audiences may just open their small programme notes booklet to read all these informations while enjoying, listening to the musicians’ performances.
