If you play an instrument, you need sheet music in order play works of others. Let’s take an example of a guitar player. In this case, I’m talking about a classical guitarist. If you know the basics and other techniques related to classical guitar playing, then you can play most of the sheet music available for the guitar. But, how can you find the sheet music for free? Free sheet music is a reality. If you need to find free sheet music, there are a few places you can look for. Let’s have a look at such places in this brief article.


The first and foremost way of finding free sheet music is the Internet. Due to the advancement of communications technology, free material is all over the Internet. Yes, some of these materials are legitimate and some are not. Ok, what are the places on the Internet that you should look for free sheet music?


There are hundreds of thousands of music websites available on the Internet. Some of these websites are hosted by the individuals and others are hosted by the companies. These websites usually offer the visitors a limited amount of free sheet music to be downloaded. But unfortunately, most of this free sheet music does not have the ‘cool’ songs or pieces that you are looking for. Most of this free sheet music offers you basic tunes and there is a high chance that you already know how to play those. In order to provide you with the ‘advanced’ sheet music, you may have to pay one-time fee or a subscription to the website and get their membership. Since we are looking for free sheet music, this is not an option for us.


Although most people do play the above trick of free sheet music, there are some genuine people and companies who offer good quality free sheet music. This free sheet music includes the works of many musicians where the work does not carry any copyright. As an example, these sites may offer you the pieces written by Issac Libniz, but not by U2. This is due to the fact that Issac’s work is copyright free and U2’s work is protected by copyrights.


Torrents are another option for you to download hundreds of thousands of free sheet music. But, most of these free sheet music torrents are not legitimate. These torrents either violate the copyright laws or carry viruses or warms in order to attach the downloader’s computer. Therefore, one should not consider torrents as an option when it comes to finding free sheet music. Without torrents, there are many other ways to get hold of free sheet music while adhering to the laws.
