Some Good Music Sites

Some Good Music Sites


So many sites; so little time. These will change occasionally. (checked as of 2/12/2009)


Want some music while you explore?

yankee2.wav (Sousa, Glory of the Yankee Navy, Trio)

queencitymarch.wav (Queen City March by W H Boorn, 1921)



Works of John Philip Sousa

(Includes midi files of all Sousa's marches! If you have music notation software, you can (edit and) print out individual parts and the score.)

< www.dws.org/sousa/content/view/22/30/ >


American Brass Band Movement: A Historical Overview

(Fascinating, just fascinating.)

< memory.loc.gov/ammem/cwmhtml/cwmpres01.html >


Band Music PDF Library

Older free public domain pieces contributed for conversion to pdf format.(The site contains public domain musical gems (downloadable) from the time of Gilmore, Sousa, Pryor, Liberati, Goldman, Reeves and other professional bands that were wildly popular in their day. From North Royalton band site in OH.)

< www.bandmusicpdf.org >


Chatfield Brass Band Music Lending Library

(A commercial site, offshoot business service of a brass band, lends music to bands and musicians. This is NOT all brass band music. The loan period is 90 days. Borrowers are charged a small handling fee to cover expenses, depending on the type of part/s.)

< www.chatfieldband.lib.mn.us/Library_08.htm >


Concert for Brass Band, Voice, and Piano

(Amazing site with music files. You can download the music files for playback, as well as download many SCORES. If you play these, your band may need Eb cornets, alto horns, and tenor horns -- what a different sound from today's band!)

< memory.loc.gov/ammem/cwmhtml/cwmconcert.html >


Directory of Musical EMail Lists

(Old list, but still with many interesting leads, if you want to get on a music mailing list.)

< www.geocities.com/Vienna/1655/listhtml.html#comm >


Making Music Magazine - Dedicated to Amateur Musicians

(This magazine, published in Syracuse, and its website covers the larger scope of amateur music. I've found that every published issue has had something useful, though not always in the depth I'd like. They have blogs on facebook and myspace for those of you like to interact that way.)

< www.MakingMusicMag.com >


Project Sousa -- Public Domain Sheet Music

(Contribute to this and you get FREE music, beyond the copyright protection years and out-of-print. Also Dave is a very cooperative and reasonable guy. I'm contributing some effort.)

< www.silverclefmusic.com/Sousa/index.htm >


Gary Wachtel's MIDI Site - Lots of Midi Files for Your Audition

(Contains direct access to my MIDI sequences: Big Band, Broadway Musicals, Movie & TV Themes, Patriotic Songs & Marches, Seasonal & Christmas Favorites, etc,)

< midistudio.com/Management/Gary/studio.html >
