What is Sheet Music Direct?

Sheetmusicdirect.com is the leading digital downloads service for musicians. We provide a huge range of digital sheet music, high-quality downloadable audio backing tracks, and downloadable video lessons. If you're after a single song, or a custom mix of titles, you can now get all you need instantly from your home computer, rather than buying a whole book!

Our digital sheet music is delivered instantly over the internet to your home printer using a browser plugin called Scorch. When you have purchased the sheet music, as well as instantly printing the music, you are able to browse through every page online, listen to full MIDI playback of the track, and transpose the music instantly into any key. If you play an instrument that uses a different tuning to standard concert pitch, you can also transpose the top line into your instrument by using the 'Substitute Instrument' feature.

Our backing tracks service offers a huge range of great titles, recorded especially for vocalists, guitarists and pianists. All backing tracks are recorded by professional musicians, and are all recorded without the lead vocals and the relevant lead instrument, so you can hear your performance with a full backing band! You can listen to a 30 second preview clip of each title from our product pages. Where available, backing tracks are linked to matching sheet music and video lessons, so you have the option of buying a complete package of complementary learning materials.

Our video lessons are generally around 20 minutes in length, and provide a full work-through of the song that the lesson is associated with. You can watch a 30 second preview clip of each video lesson from our product pages.

Sheetmusicdirect.com is jointly operated by The Music Sales Group and Hal Leonard Corporation, two of the largest and most respected sheet music publishers in the world. If you've ever bought a book of sheet music offline, the chances are that it was published by one of these publishers.

This is your guarantee of quality in two important respects:

  1. The engravings that appear on Sheetmusicdirect.com are all produced by Music Sales & Hal Leonard, so they have gone through the same rigorous editorial checks as print books, and the engravings are also approved by the relevant artists and composers.
  2. These publishers are well established retailers with years of experience and a backup team second-to-none, so you can be assured of top quality customer service in the event of any problems.
