"Where Do I find the Music for...?'
Happy Back to School! I love this time of year!
Just wanted to give you some advice on purchasing music.
Back in the day, I loved perusing the sheet music stores
and trying out music on the piano.
Nowadays, I find the best place to find music is online.
Musicnotes.com is a good site for downloading and printing
music from your computer. This site is especially helpful
for popular music.
Sheet Music Plus is a good site for ordering lesson books. You can use the search box above to look for music. The link will take you to their site. You can check out music books at the library too. This is a fun way of trying out different styles.
Also, for beginners to intermediate pianists, gmajormusictheory.org, is one of my favorite sites. This site is run by a piano teacher, Gilbert DeBenedetti. Go to the site and click on Free Piano Music. You can listen to it online before you print. He has it arranged by levels. Most of it is public domain, that is why it is free! Mr. DeBenedetti also includes some of his own compositions to purchase.
Another site I use is susanparadis.com. This site is wonderful for young beginners and has some fun music worksheets. The teacher, Susan Paradis
also includes some of her own compositions.
And the Community Music Center usually has stacks of used music for sale. I've
found some gems there! This is a good resource for sight reading material, but I've also found a lot of wonderful classical music collections.
Enjoy the music!
