Music Download Info

Why are my scores free?

They're not entirely free. You do have to download and print them, which are paper and ink expenses for you. I ask you to write me a note, too. And royalties are due as with any licensed music (even if you bought a score). But it's a good deal for you because the music is diverse and wonderful. You can choose from hundreds of pieces and audition them at no risk without having to deal with rental agencies or publishers (because Westleaf Edition is my own publishing company and I made this business decision).

Of course if you do want printed copies of the music, Frog Peak Music will take care of that for you. Libraries, colleges, orchestras and other institutions may want the freedom of just placing an order and having bound music arrive ready for the shelf. So contact Frog Peak. They are very nice folks who will get music to you promptly.

You're probably thinking there's more to this, and you are right. The "more" is that I believe in my music, and it's been my life for more than 40 years. I want to make it easy for you to find it and to play it. (No, it's not necessarily easy to play ... but that part is up to you!) It's difficult for any living composer to compete with the vast public domain legacy of Mozart and Haydn and Beethoven and Brahms that cycles through every conservatory, concert program and radio show. There are so many of us, and how can you figure out what music is worth the investment? So I decided to make access to my compositions as easy as possible so you can discover the delights (and challenge!) of performing something new for your audiences, or just for practice.

So please download, print, rehearse, perform and enjoy my music!
