Hey everyone, I am an amateur piano composer. A few years ago I composed a series of solo piano pieces, one in each key. I wrote out all the sheet music, pretty meticulously, and made less meticulous recordings. I previously emailed a bunch of solo music publishers with a sample of my music, and one of them agreed to publish it, but they eventually stopped responding to me (I got the impression that they were pretty busy). Anyways, I have some free time right now, so I'm looking into trying to publish my music again. My current plan is to put the recordings on youtube and soundcloud, then link a place to purchase my sheet music. I just discovered a few sites that will publish your sheet music and give you some of the sales. I'm just wondering 1) if anyone has used any of these sites, and if so, which one(s) they reccomend, 2) if I've missed any good websites in this category, 3) if anyone has any advice regarding my general plan? Here are the best websites I've found so far: https://smppress.sheetmusicplus.com/ https://www.musicaneo.com/services/publish_sheet_music.html http://www.arcomis.com/publishing/ https://www.scoreexchange.com/ For context, I have a day job, and am not at all worried about supporting myself from music sales. However, I thought it would be cool to get my music out there, and see if I could make any money in the process. I know a little about website development, but am shying away from this option due to the time commitment. Thanks in advance!

I started to publish my music in Brazil since dezember 2013 (very recent). I've been doing it in a very independent way: there are some publishining companies that accept your uploaded pdf material and sell it by POD (printing on demand). This is a very useful feature here in Brazil, as we are a country without the culture of buying and selling scores (we have to either download it or buy from other countries). So, I'd like to know about your situation. Is anyone here publishing own scores? What do you thing about it in our era? How is the score-selling background in your location? What means do you have to publish you own score? I know that Jaap Cramer has published materials, and I "suppose" that Sojar Voglar has something like it. What about other people?
Hey YC! I am currently in the process of looking up publishers for voice and opera music and I have no idea where to start as I have never really sought after publishers before. I know there are certain publishers that can get music out there better than others depending on the genre (like, some specialize in band and others specialize in jazz, etc.) and I would like to know which are the best ones that can get voice music out there. Also, I need to know so that way I know how I can format the scores I plan to send in. To be more specific about which pieces I am hoping to get published, this summer a couple of professors asked me if I would be willing to fix and re-notate the score to an opera that they had composed earlier and then send it in to a publisher so it can be on the market. The opera is based on Native American history and so publishing companies that appreciate history would be some of the top choices that I am looking at as well. As far as my own music, I want to send in my "Ramblings of a Social Network" piece (which is here on YC) and possibly a one-act opera I composed called 'Mother, Please' (not on YC but I can fix that =p). Thank you in advance for letting me know of any publishers! If you need anymore details on what I'm looking for than I'm more than happy to respond! :) Best, Carlos Gamboa
