where do you guys get most of your sheet music?  i know i get alot from the internet from sites like IMSLP and blogs, but my teacher doesnt trust classical sheet music from the web.  she buys all her classical music.  my thought about classical music from the web is that it had to be scanned from somewhere, unless someone wrote it up with some sheet music software.  but still, as long as the notes are correct i dont see anything wrong with it.  what do y'all think?

One thing good about classical music is that it is open domain to re-record because copyrights run out on ownership after so many years. You can find free sheet music all over the place on the web and use a site like Youtube to listen to great versions to compare to. Just go searching.

I guess I should start searching back in this forum, I didn't know you already played G? You have a teacher?

i have a piano teacher. dont play violin yet 😛

 

i didnt think about re-recording classical pieces.  youtube is good for finding transcriptions of new music too.  not sure about the legality of transcriptions though dunno

if its classical you can usually find it..but the more comtemporary you get the more likely it is to be under copyright.

but yeah, look on youtube for some transcribers more modern music 🙂

I just search google for sheet music. The thing about sheet music from the internet is that it could've been transcribed by people by ear so it may differ a little from "official" sheet music. I find this to be especially true for mainstream music.

 

Although I can usually find most classical pieces on the internet, I still prefer to have the printed out and binded copy of the music if I can afford it.
