I won't go into all the technical difficulties but it is not like reading a book!
I once saw a musician who was a one man four or five piece band. He used a computer to control all of the midi tracks to accompany him as lead guitar and vocal. His rig also displayed the sheet music for the particular piece he was doing and took care of all of the page turns and repeats.

And all of this in the eighties, before there were ereaders, or even Windows, or Linux.
