Free Sheet Music Sites for Choral, Vocal, Instrumental Music

Updated on December 15, 2011

Looking for FREE or inexpensive sheet music online?

Looking for FREE sheet music - for choral groups, piano, guitar and other instruments? This is the spot for music for your choir, FREE piano sheet music, FREE contemporary Christian music, and more.

I own an online store selling used church choir music at a fraction of the cost of new, so I welcome you to visit REJOICE Music today at www.rejoicemusic.net.

I would also encourage you to support the sites listed here.  Some of the sites offer totally 100% free music, and ask for donations or have other items available for purchase.  Some have a premium membership option, or ask that you report your usage of the songs on your CCLI license so that they will receive royalties.  Thanks!

FREE sheet music for Handel's "Messiah"

Need a last-minute score of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus for Christmas Sunday? You can print-off the entire Messiah score (for SATB voices and soloists) from the SingHarmony.com website. A great resource!

And, for MORE great Christmas music, please visit REJOICE Music for all your choral music needs! Lightly used choral music @ a fraction of the cost of new!

FREE Sheet Music Links

Here are some GREAT sites offering free sheet music. It's a nice mix of classical music, instrumental lessons, choral music, and more. Enjoy!

Copyright Laws

If you are searching for free music, make sure that it is not only free, but LEGAL. Take the time to learn about public domain music versus copyrighted music and make sure you are abiding by all current copyright laws.

I have two lens on copyright issues that might be a good resource. The first is CCLI - Christian Copyright Licensing International and the second is Copyright Laws and the Church Musician.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H your Music Budget!

      You have some very good resources on here. I use sheet music to get a certain feel from a song by looking at the scale and then flip it to make myown hip hop instrumentals. Keep it up!

      HI, I have been a worship leader for many years. You have hit somwthing that I discovered about 5 years ago. When I burn a CD for my worship team to listen to and to practice to. The instructions are that this is a copy of another artists work. DO NOT MAKE COPIES AND GIVE THEN TO YOUR FRIENDS!! But what I discovered is that once the worship learned the song on the CD, almost all of them went out and bought the CD plus they bought other CD's by that artist. Amazing, isn't it how many CD were bought just because someone received a sample of some music.

      Keep writing your music. If I decide to use it for a Cd that I am going to sell. You will be that first to know. Thank you for your talent, and thank you for allowing others the share in your gift. May God continue bless you. Worship Bob
