The quality is often not so good as there are many wrong notes, incorrect dynamic markings, sloppy phrasings and pedalings and often the music has been edited so many times by non-professionals that it barely even resembles the composer’s intentions!

classical sheet music

I was amazed to find the sheer quantity of online printable classical sheet music that can be downloaded instantly and doesn’t require your credit card. So many pieces of classical music are now in public domain which means that they are copyright free as many of the most important classical composers have died too long ago for their to still be copyright protection on their works.

Even high-quality classical piano sheet music by major composers such as Mozart and Chopin can now be downloaded for free on the web if you know exactly where to look. However, if you’re like me and still enjoy that sexy feeling of having a real book in front of you on high-quality paper made by a pure ‘urtext’ edition, I will direct you to places where you can get these piano books at a reduced cost.

pop sheet music

Now here things get a little more tricky in the area of copyright protection as many of the composers and lyricists of our most popular songs are still alive and demand a piece of their profit. I’m not a lawyer so I can’t any advice on how to go about this.

They love the idea of working out the harmonies used in a Coldplay, Beatles or Alicia Keys song, just to say they can play it.

jazz sheet music

Jazz sheet music is not always the easiest to find especially music written specifically for the piano. Piano books with riffs of famous star pianists are often very expensive and limited. However, if all you need are tabs (see next section) and the basic melody to start your improvisation work, your options expand significantly.

Probably the best way to approach the problem of jazz piano sheet music is to make your own music. There are plenty of .mid (midi) files on the web made by jazz hobbyists and special software you can use right away to transcribe these files into your own sheet music.

piano tabs

piano tabs

Piano tabs are piano notes written in text format and give the performer a greater sense of freedom. Rather than writing out every single note required for the proper execution of a piece of music, as if often the case with most classical works, a few simple numbers and letters instruct the player what to do.

With some basic music training, everyone can grasp how to read and make the best use of piano tabs. Printable sheet music tabs are often readily available for instant access over the internet and often include the lyrics to go with a particular song. Usually you’ll already need to have been acquainted with a song in advance in order to make the best use of them.

Browse for Piano Sheet Music by Composer

The best way to search through this site is to use Google’s powerful engine but in order to aid you in your search for the perfect music, I’ve broken down all the sheet music available on this site into three categories. You can now browse for sheet music using an alphabetical listing of each composer. The list of composers will still be divided into three categories…classical, pop and jazz.

browse for sheet music by composition title

Here you can browse for your favorite work/song; you can begin by choosing the first letter of its title. In most instances, music/songs beginning the word “the” will not be listed under [T] but by the beginning of the word that comes after. If you have trouble with this, try first doing a google search of our site for your preferred title. Ex.: “ XXXXXXX” replacing XXXXXXX with the title of your sheet music.

browse for sheet music by style

Style is a very general keyword and for our browsing purposes it does not only consist of the genre such as classical, pop or jazz. It goes beyond this through a careful analysis of the emotional idea behind each piece of music, whether it be scary piano music, relaxing, dramatic, etc. Have fun with this section and send me any of your suggestions!

What To Play All These Goodies On

The question often arises as to what instrument is best to use? An acoustic piano or electric? As a general rule of thumb, it’s probably best to use an acoustic piano for classical piano, and an acoustic or electric piano for all other types of music. There’s really no such category as ‘Electric piano sheet music’ as it will look just the same as any ordinary piano sheet music.
