I'm a drum instructor in the Sacramento area and over the course of the past few years I've developed my own curriculum that I give to all of my students to learn. I often break away from the curriculum to explore other topics and adjust each lesson to my students needs, but having the curriculum is a really nice way to bring structure to the lessons and gives students a jumping off point to discover what they would like to learn more of. My curriculum has grow over the last few years and I'm finally thinking about making PDF and spiral bound books to give to each of my students once they begin lessons. While my students would get it for free, I've debated the idea of posting it online for others to buy or download. The only issue I can think of is that all of my curriculum is completely handwritten (Much like A Funky Primer by Charles Dowd). This brings me to my question.

If any of you were to download or buy a book, would you be okay with having it hard written, or would you prefer it digitized in Finale? I personally prefer handwritten books as they feel a lot less sterile than digitally notated ones and I find them much easier to look at, but I can also understand the concern for the tidiness that comes with digital transcriptions. I have been writing by hand for years and can do it very quickly, but to digitize I would have to teach my self the subtleties of finale (which I guess would be a good skill to have anyways). Any input would be very appreciated.

Thanks!
