    This is work compiled from and and tweaked by my own work throughout the game. There are potential spoilers in this guide.

    You can only acquire ALL the score pieces through Encore mode. Also, Eternal Sonata does not number your score pieces when you acquire them. Chances are that your score pieces are out of order. has pictures of each piece to match up with the following numbering.

    1st playthrough

    Chapter 1
    1. Inside the stall/shrine next to March's house in Agogo Village

    Chapter 2
    2. In a chest at the end of Fort Fermata, after you defeat the boss.

    Chapter 3
    3. In a boat outside Cantabile Inn, located near the save point.
    4. In a chest in Woodblock Groves, this is near the middle save point (North Center region).
    5. Once you've entered Andante City proper, it is in the third room you pass, a store room, on the shelves to your right.
    6. Hidden near a rock pillar in the entrance of Andante City proper (you must first find a note in some boxes next to the house that triggers the event to go to the graveyard).

    Chapter 4
    7. On a bookshelf on the Baroque Ship's east deck, guest room to the right
    8. On the bow of the Baroque Ship, in a barrel, after you trigger a scene with Fredrick.

You must have both Pirate Papers from defeating Dolce in the pirate ship (compulsory to the story) as well as Wah Lava Caves (optional), and have examined the six pillars in the Mandolin Church Catacombs in Ritardando (past the waterfall section). After obtaining these, speaking to the employee in the Wine Cellar and selecting the third option will result in a third fight against Dolce, after which this Score Piece can be found in one of the barrels.

    31. If you were unable to get Score Piece 31 in chapter 6 here are the same directions: a gift from the couple in the house south of the merchant in Baroque City after saving the man from Sharp Mountains. This requires climbing Sharp Mountains once more and battling a reasonably easy mini-boss.

    Zer0eIt should also be pointed out that to get Score Piece 31 by triggering the Snow Dogs sidequest, you MUST have Viola active in your party and not just available to use. Kept going to the house for the mission with Jazz, Falsetto and Allegretto and it never triggered. Once I had Viola, it triggered.

    kinda503I just had the snow dogs sidequest trigger without having Viola in my active party. During chapter 6 with Falsetto/Allegreto/Jazz.

    dropK1CK ninJAYou can't backtrack until chapter 7 for it. I re call the necessary dialog unaccessible until chapter 7. Can someone else please confirm?

    Styles PluralMy god the backtracking for this achievement is real. I actually got the first 25 score pieces in my first playthrough so they carried over to Encore Mode. This at least allows you to get some extra items from the performance NPCs throughout your Encore run.

    But wow Score Piece #32 was a giant headache to backtrack for. It was so jarring having to walk ALL the way back from the Noise Dunes, through To Coda Ruins and back to Baroque just to warp to Forte City and backtrack some more South to where you need to go. Not to mention the sheer amount of enemy encounters you'll have to face when going back. I really wish they could have streamlined the items and collectibles better in this game. Maybe label each score piece with a number or make it so you don't have to deviate so much to perform side tasks. Anyways thanks for your solution. +1 from me.
