A couple year ago, Beck released an entire album’s worth of new material as sheet music. No official recordings. Just the paper and notation. Thousands of artists around the globe interpreted that sheet music to make their own own versions of the songs. it was a huge success — as an artistic achievement, as a PR story, and as a way for Beck to open up his creative process to collaborate with fans.
But you don’t have to be as famous as Beck to make money selling sheet music of your original tunes. Jazz composers, new age pianists, folk singers, and yes — even indie rockers — are selling sheet music. And now CD Baby has partnered with Digital Print Publishing (a service of Sheet Music Plus) to help you sell sheet music too.
