is devoted to two main objectives:
-to provide band directors with an easy way to find and acquire
high-quality new music
-to provide self-published composers with a free way to have their
compositions for this website are selected through a highly competitive
call for scores, which is ongoing. Many
pieces selected for our site have been honored as winners or
finalists in the most prestigious wind band competitions,
including the Frederick Fennell Prize, The Barlow Endowment, and 2 of
the last 3 Sousa/Ostwald Award winners.
let me know if you have any comments or suggestions, and perhaps
Please let me know when
you find/purchase/perform a piece because of this site!!!
When you purchase one of the pieces on NBM, we do not make any money
off of it:
you are sent to the composer's purchase page or contact info and buy it
directly from them.
Because you acquire each piece straight from the composer and not from
feedback from performers is the best way we can judge how effective
I hope you find NewBandMusic to be useful!!
