Free Sheet Music Online

Finding free music to download or print from the Internet can get a little tricky.  Searches often lead you to sites that are so hard to navigate, you can’t find anything even close to what you’re looking for, or they end up bringing you somewhere to make you buy music.  I’m always on the search for good websites that are user friendly and offer free sheet music.  Here are some of the best and easiest websites I’ve found.  Enjoy!

Most Variety:
You can browse by ANY instrument, style, arrangement or a combination of the three.  They also give you the difficulty of each piece, so you can find something that works for your level.

Video Game Theme Music!
Let’s face it, some game music is pretty cool.  Below you can find themes from old classics to today’s most popular games!
http://www.mariopiano.com – Music from the first Super Mario Bros. game for Nintendo!
http://www.gamemusicthemes.com/sheetmusic.html – Sheet music for themes from Nintendo all the way through Wii and even PC.

Can’t Find What You’re Looking For?
There are some great sites that offer digital downloads of sheet music for relatively cheap.  My favorite by far is Musicnotes.com.  Just buy and print! They have a huge variety with different levels and all the latest popular music!  For singers (or pianists who don’t like 7 sharps…) there is a convenient option to change from the original key, to one that suits you better! A single piece is about $5, but when you buy 3 or more, they’ll give you a discount.
