Emeryville, California (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
Sheet Music Plus (http://www.sheetmusicplus.com), the premier destination for online sheet music, announces the launch of their inaugural digital sheet music collection, making printable sheet music available anywhere, anytime to consumers. With Digital Print, consumers can view their online sheet music at home, school or work with any computer that supports Adobe AIR and an Internet connection. The digital collection is both economical and green for consumers; they save on shipping costs while also significantly reducing their carbon footprint.
“Just as we harnessed the power of the Internet to give music lovers all over the world access to the largest collection of sheet music anywhere through our printed collection, we are thrilled that our new digital collection is making sheet music both easier and quicker for musicians everywhere to obtain,” says Jennifer Silva, CEO of Sheet Music Plus. “We’re also thrilled that our digital product is making sheet music that isn’t available in hard copy available to music lovers for the very first time.”
Sheet Music Plus launches with 89,186 digital titles from publishers Alfred and Hal Leonard. They look forward to continually adding new titles from these publishers while concurrently adding new publishers before year-end. Their new Digital Print collection mirrors their all-encompassing overall collection; covering most instruments—piano, guitar, vocal, woodwinds, brass, strings and percussion—and including pop, rock, classical and Christmas titles. Both collections also include many titles for band and orchestra.
Sheet Music Plus has made the user experience a top priority; unlike other companies that require one to download proprietary applications, Sheet Music Plus’s digital print view is built into Adobe Flash, making it possible for any flash enabled device to access and view purchased digital print titles. Since most computer owners already have Flash installed it makes viewing Sheet Music Plus’s digital music extremely easy.
Sheet Music Plus’s music is stored in the cloud; users can access and print from anywhere—home, work or school. Just like with a printed piece of music, the buyer receives as many copies as he or she purchased. There is no downloading of the music files or saving the files the buyer’s computer. The buyer can print as many copies they purchased whenever they want and has unlimited access to view the music.
During Sheet Music Plus’s initial months of digital sales, their top 10 selling titles included:
1. Make you feel my love - -Adele and Bob Dylan
2. Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen
3. At Last – Etta James
4. Over the Rainbow – Judy Garland and the Wizard of Oz
5. The Prayer – Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, "Babyface" Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Tony Renis, and Alberto Testa.
6. Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro) – Andrea Borelli
7. Clocks – Coldplay
8. Gravity – Sara Bareilles
9. Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
10. Mad World - Gary Jules and Tears For Fears
It’s worth nothing that Sheet Music Plus’s top digital sales don’t necessarily mirror their traditional sales and that, for example, “Mad World,” number 10 on their top ten digital list, isn’t available in printed form anywhere. There are many songs like “Mad World” that musicians want to play, but aren’t economical for a publisher to print. By offering hard to find or out of print titles digitally, Sheet Music Plus is bringing back music that has not been available.
During its beta launch Digital Print Sheet Music was instantly a favorite of teachers, students, casual players, and professionals. It appeals to the buyer who wants speed, to save on shipping and to only purchase a particular song title, not necessarily a whole song book.
Going into the holiday season, Sheet Music Plus predicts their gift certificates will be even more popular as recipients will now have over 720,000 titles to choose form. When considering gifts for musicians this December, there is nothing easier or more convenient than a Sheet Music Plus gift certificate which the recipient can use seamlessly and instantly.
