Sheet Music

Where can you find sheet music?

Fortunately, with the exception of certain compositions enumerated in Golan v. Holder, anything published before January 1st, 1923 is in the public domain in the United States. No more works will enter the public domain until 2019. Different rules apply in other countries; please seek qualified legal advice.

The International Music Score Library Project has tens of thousands of public-domain compositions available for download for free.

Mozart’s complete works (searchable) are available for personal use only at the International Mozart Foundation’s web site.

The Choral Public Domain Library has many thousands of free public-domain works as well.

The Internet Archive also has a large number of free public-domain scores.

Some items may be available for the Amazon Kindle. These won’t be free, but you may find some gems here that won’t be available elsewhere. Some are in copyright, but many are in the public domain.
