You will need to find various scores for your assignments and these scores are accessed through Library Search. You can search for a score by the composers name, or the title of the piece of music. On the results page, there is an option on the left of the screen to limit by location and scores will almost all be in Mky Scores. The record for a score will have the word 'Music' in square brackets, such as this example: -

If you know the name of the composer, you can use their name as a keyword instead of 'recording'.
e.g. play-a-long jazz davis
