Sheet Music


Time to RAWK!

Sound Files for All Sheet Music

Read this before proceeding!

    • Our Books: We have Levels 1 through 4a and Christmas books pre-printed and waiting for you at the office. They’re for our students and have plenty of instruction not available online. Save your sanity and your printer and come buy one or all of them.
    • What’s TuffAxe? It’s the chord-melody arrangement. Some people call it “fingerstyle”… as if you play guitar with something other than your fingers(?!). It’s tough to play, and if you can do it, you’re “tuff” … that’s good.
    • Copyright: You’re welcome to use the sheets posted here in almost any way that quacks your duck. Don’t sell anything you find on this page or we’ll hunt you down and start dating your sister. Songs under copyright protection from the original composer aren’t posted and you’ll need to email to acquire a copy after a short discussion about your plans.
    • Standard Notation: In tablature we trust, but we like standard notation too. If you want copies without tablature, we can make that happen. It’s the modern world and we own software.
    • Multiple Voicing: Each piece of sheet music is designed to be played in at least four different ways. Level 5 material can have even more voicings.
    • Get a Teacher Ya Lunatic: Just because you find sheet music on the web, doesn’t mean you have the tools to make music. Get with a qualified instructor to create a decent skill set and stop wasting time gutting it out by yourself with internet downloads.
    • Sound Files: You should download the computer generated sound files and listen to them a zillion times prior to tackling each song.

In addition to the conductor’s score and sound file, individual parts have their own sheets and sound files available too.
