Is the music in fine print or large print?The sheet music is fairly large print and easy to read.
Is the sheet music loose or bound?Both the piano book and instrument book are spiral bound with easy page turns.
Do I have to turn pages when playing?All solos are no more than 2 open-face pages. The soloist has no page turns during the performance.
If the pianist provides their purchase order number and shipping name and address to us, we will provide a pdf of their piano music.
They can then print their music single-sided and tape the pages together into one long sheet for performances. This keeps the pianist from
having to rip up his or her piano book.

Emergency overnight delivery can be arranged for short-dated performances to maximize your practice time. Contact us prior to your order for confirmation
