Free Printable Sheet Music on the Internet

Free Printable Sheet Music on the Internet
by Carlinton Singh

Many individuals are in search of free printable sheet music online. However, there are only few websites that will allow you to download some of their music for free.

I do not want to disappoint you, but most of the sheet music that you are searching for online are not for free. This is because of the penalties that an individual or company can face for breaking the copyright law. You should also realise that the sheet music that you are able to download for free on the internet are mostly for music students at the beginner’s level.

For me though, I do not see anything wrong with spending 0.99cents up to $2.00 for sheet music that I really need. However, I have created this post so that you will be aware of websites to visit for free sheet music.

Here are two websites that you can visit and find free printable sheet music.

This website has been on the internet since 2001 and has a large collection of sheet music for almost any instrument you can think of. And guess what, you can find several free sheet music that are shared by the members of their website. This website is safe to visit and you have the option of becoming a member which is very easy to do. When you are a member, you have more access to all the resources that they have online. However, you also need to know that not all the music sheets there are for free.

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing online for some sheet music for some of my piano students and I was directed to this website. is a resourceful website. They have sheet music for vocals, piano, guitar, recorders and so on. I have downloaded a few of their music without paying a penny. All the music sheets that I have printed from their website are PDF files, so I was able to download them on my computer and print them. I was done in a short time.

I am sure that there are more websites that offers free printable sheet music. If you know about any please let me know so that I can spread the word.

Trumpet Lessons | Trumpet Fingering Chart for Beginners

Trumpet Lessons | Trumpet Fingering Chart for Beginners

Today I want to take a shift from my piano lessons and do a brief trumpet lesson. 

The trumpet is a brass wind instrument. It is very loud and has a bright tone color. It is played in the treble staff so therefore we can say that its pitch is high. The mouth piece and the valves are the main part of the instrument that is used to change the pitch of each note.

Like many string and woodwind instruments, the seven letters of the musical alphabet are located on the trumpet. As a matter of fact all 12 keys or tones in music can be played on the trumpet at more than one octave.

While the trumpet may be smaller than other brass instruments, it is used to play the lead role within the brass section of a band or ensemble.

Let take a look at the different fingering position for each note on the trumpet. I have provided a trumpet fingering chat for you. Many beginner trumpet players will find this trumpet fingering chart to be useful.

All credits go to for preparing this accurate trumpet fingering chart for us.

Today's Music Lesson - The Orchestra

Music Lesson – The Orchestra by Carlinton Singh

Today I want to share some information on the orchestra.
The orchestra can be described as a large instrumental ensemble with a wide variety of musical instruments. It is made of four families of musical instruments; they are string, woodwind, brass and percussion. The strings are often refers to as the core of the orchestra.

The organization of this unique ensemble can be traced back as far as the 1600s and have developed during the baroque period. During this period there were smaller orchestra groups that range from about 15 to 40 persons. However, as music changes over the centuries, the size has grown immensely. Some time over 100 musicians are used in an orchestra.

Now let us take a look at the different families of instruments that make up the orchestra.

The String Family
 The string family is made of string instruments. The strings on these instruments are plucked or bowed in order for them to produce sound. The main string instruments that are used in an orchestra are violins, violas, cellos and double bass.

The Woodwind Family
In this family the instruments are referred to as woodwind because they were traditionally made of wood. These instruments can be described as a long tube with holes on them. The holes are covered by the fingers or by pads that are controlled by our fingers. Some of these instruments carry a small strip of wood on the mouth piece called a reed. Some woodwind instruments are piccolo, flute, clarinet, oboe and bassoon.

The Brass Family
Instruments of the brass family are wind instruments that are loud and bright in tone color. These instruments are mostly used when the music climaxes. The range of pitches created by a brass wind instrument is controlled by the mouth piece, valves and slides. Brass instruments are often referred to as the horn section of the orchestra. Some instruments that make up the brass family are trumpet, cornet, french horn, trombone, euphonium and tuba.

The Percussion Family
Percussion instruments are those that you hit and shake to produce sound. These instruments play a vital role in the orchestra. There are several percussion instruments that are often used in an orchestra. They are xylophone, glockenspiel, timpani, gongs, cymbal, chimes, triangle, bass drum, snare drum, tenor drums among others.

Even though modern instruments are sometimes included in the orchestra, we can all say that it has not lost its flavor. The elements of music are still expressed in modern orchestras. 

Do you have more information to share about the orchestra the level it in the comments box. Or.... Simply just leave a comment if you like this article.
