How to Find and Buy Sheet Music Online

Many years ago, before everybody and their dog had a record player, a cassette tape machine, a CD machine, MP3 or very clever mobile phone, if you wanted to listen to the popular tunes of the day you either switched on the radio or you simply bought some sheet music and learned how to play it yourself - I actually have a great collection of early Elvis Presley, Doris Day and lots lots more which my mother used to buy and learn to play on the piano (instead of buying records I was told).  Well, not surprisingly, it is still possible to find and buy a large selection of sheet music for many different instruments and from many different genres of music, only these days you don’t even have to go to the music store – you can simply order them online.

Finding Sheet Music Online

When you want to find some sheet music online there are really three basic ways to search for it, you can search by artiste eg:

  • Justin Bieber (if you really want to!)
  • Taylor Swift
  • Elton John (wow, he’s been going for years!)

You can search for sheet music by instrument eg:

  • Trumpet
  • Piano
  • Violin
  • Recorder

And you can search for it by theme:

  • Christmas music
  • Popular television music
  • Music from a film
  • Classical music

So you see, there really is sheet music to suit everybody, and when you are learning to play a specific instrument, what could be a better feeling of achievement than playing the sounds of your favorite singer or composer. You’ll really feel like you’re getting somewhere (even if you’re singing isn’t exactly up to standard).

So how do you go about buying your sheet music online? Well, simply put in a search (there are loads of ideas I’ve already mentioned) and check out some of the very many websites which supply sheet music online. It can very often be with you within only a couple of days ready for you to start practicing and annoying the neighbors!
