While I agree that music should not be copied, I do think that some music publisher’s music is overpriced, especially for the education market. Understandably, many publishers won’t even consider listing pieces in their catalog that won’t sell hundreds of copies. This leaves a hole in the market and a need for quality sheet music of lesser-known works and works of independent authors.
For these reasons, I want to offer today’s educators a deal that is good for both the composer and the educational institution. I do understand that marketing materials, advertising, shipping, and the like costs money, but there is a better way for independent publishers. As a long-time Apple/Mac user, I tend to “think different” when it comes to sheet music, copyright, and publishing. I feel that it is important to make everyone happy.
Here’s how Laux Music compositions and arrangements will work:
- I do not use printed music, pieces are electronically delivered in PDF format
- The piece may be copied as many times as you wish for yourself or your organization, but may not be distributed to others. Any external use of the piece will be considered copyright infringement. Each piece will be imprinted with a license number that includes the individual’s or group’s name.
- Pieces will be affordable so that everyone can own them!
Advantages of using digital sheet music…
- If a part is lost or damaged, just print another one!
- Green – Better for the environment. Print only the parts that you need. Recyclable too.
- No physical storage space required
- No shipping charges
- 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of music, fits in a binder
- Can easily be loaded onto an iPad or other eReader that accepts PDF files
- More affordable and convenient than printed music
You can pay with Visa/Mastercard via PayPal!
Upon payment, your sheet music is personalized with a license number and e-mailed to you within 48 hours. From there you are free to make as many copies for your school as you need.
