3 Noteworthy Sites To Find Music Scores Online

So, you just heard a new song being played via the radio this morning and you tell yourself that you want to play the song on the piano too! Chances are high that you will attempt to search online for the availability of the music score.

In this article, I want to introduce you to 3 noteworthy sites which I had personally used to get my scores. Some are paid, some are free. Let’s begin with the free resource.

International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP)

International Music Score Library Project or IMSLP is a community-built library of public domain sheet music. It contains music for just about any instrument that you can think off. It is also free to download. However, there is a catch ; it only contains classical music ( no pop music ) . By classical , I mean any of the old masters ranging from year 1700 to 2000. So if you are interested to play some Chopin or Mozart, that is a very good place to start hunting for some scores.

Musicnotes.com

If you are looking for something more contemporary, try www.musicnotes.com. I like to use this site to look for popular music scores such as those played by the piano guys. Most of the scores there are not free. You pay for the score and you get the option to immediately print it out for playing. However, one thing I do not like about this site is that they restrict your ability to reprint scores.

That is to say, if you had misplaced your printed scores from musicnotes.com, you are not allowed to reprint the score even though you had bought it once. Their license only allows you to print it once and that’s about it. You are required to pay again in order to reprint your score.

Personally, i think this is quite an inconvenience because I did misplaced my score once and I know how lousy it feels.

Sheetmusicplus.com

Lastly, there is sheetmusicplus.com. If you are looking for any scores at all, this site would not disappoint. After all, it has the world’s largest sheet music collection. Ranging from music theories, to adult piano kits etc. They even guarantee low prices, and great customer service.

Personally, I would say this is a very good site to start hunting for your music materials. I had also added the search box at the top of this post for your convenience. Want a score? just type the title in and see what scores they have in store for you.

Of course, the list of scores providers on the web is non-exhaustive. If you are still unable to find your score from the above mentioned sites, you can also simply google it by typing : ” [Song Name] + music score ”

Lastly, there is always the conventional method of just simply walking into your local book stores in search for the freshest hard copies available.

All the best in finding your next music score!
