Often on this blog we discuss what happens after you download your sheet music: the practicing, the performing and expanding your music theory knowledge and musical skills. The essential component to improving in all of these facets is that you’ll need sheet music. Astute sheet music shoppers know that Musicnotes.com has nearly all the sheet music you could ever want or need.
Browsing a nearly endless sheet music catalogue could prove quite the challenge. That’s why Musicnotes has made it easier than ever to find the music you want to play. You may have noticed our search tool upgrade earlier this year. When you type your query into the search box, we’ll offer suggestions of popular related terms as well as the ability to narrow results by genre, scoring and instrument.
While search will be your first tool in pinpointing the specific piece you need, it’s also helpful to be familiar with the various types of sheet music arrangements offered at Musicnotes.com. Here’s a quick breakdown:
Our Singer Pro arrangements differ from typical sheet music in that the vocal line is separate from the accompaniment (rather than the right hand of the piano mirroring the vocal line). This offers a professional arrangement for vocalists who play piano or who use an accompanist.
We have more than 14,000 officially licensed Singer Pro titles available to download, print and play right now. Kind of makes you appreciate the handy search tool, no?
We created Beginner Notes arrangements with one goal in mind: to make it possible for ANYONE to play music. Musicnotes’ Beginner Notes arrangements feature very basic one-hand notation, with the letter of the note indicated right on the note head.
Simply print out our free piano guide, place it on your keyboard, and learn to play a wide variety of current hits, classical essentials, holiday favorites and more!
Our Musicnotes Editions are exclusive engravings of public domain works, created by our in-house staff of world-class professional arrangers.
Since Musicnotes owns these specific arrangements, we allow you unlimited print outs as well as full performance rights.
You’ll be able to tell which pieces are Musicnotes Editions by the green ‘note’ symbol on the left-hand side.
Featuring the melody, lyrics and chords, leadsheets are perfect for any musician or band who needs the basic song structure from which to build a full performance, or people who just want a simplified version of the song.
Our catalogue includes close to 8,000 downloadable leadsheet titles, offering gigging and casual musicians alike a huge toolbox from which they can download and print instantly (or sync to our FREE interactive apps for sheet music on-the-fly).
Put your hands together for duet sheet music! Musicnotes offers a great array of 1 Piano, 4-Hands arrangements that make crowd-pleasing partner recital pieces and offer a level of complexity that otherwise could not be achieved with merely 10 fingers.
Grab a partner, find a piano and make musical memories with these fun-to-play arrangements.
Last, but certainly not least, we wanted to touch on our rapidly expanding choral sheet music catalogue. You might know that we offer many of today’s hottest pop songs in choral arrangements well before you’ll find them anywhere else.
We’ve also made sure that you have the world’s best choral shopping experience at Musicnotes. When you visit our choral homepage, you can choose to browse by choir type, or you can type in a search term and then narrow the results by choir type.
Additionally, by popular demand, we’ve added full choral previews to better help you determine if an arrangement is right for your group.
