Can't find sheet music for a song?
If you cannot find sheet music for
a certain song, then we just might!
For a fee — we will contact the publisher or the recording artist.
We will ask them for a source for their printed sheet music of their
commercially-released recording (e.g., vinyl record or mp3).
The Sherlock Holmes of sheet music
Please note: If successful, then Lead Sheet Take Down Service will charge a finders fee
of $30 to $50, depending on the difficulty of obtaining the sheet music.
But you pay nothing to submit the song title to us.
We won't know if it is even possible until we check out the song through
the performing rights organizations, ASCAP and BMI and SESAC.
• If we do take on the project,
then you will be notified that the search is on.
• If we do not take on the project,
then, sorry. — No harm in asking.
And we won't contact you, since there is nothing to report.
Sorry for the silence. We might re-try later, if 2 or 3 other people
request the same song.
• If we do find a source,
then we will let you know by e-mail.
You pay the finders fee, and you get your copy, either by e-mail as a PDF file
or by mail in hard copy format, depending on whatever format we were lucky
enough to find.
• If we do not find a source,
then we do nothing. We wait.
We won't e-mail you with any progress reports. — The publisher might take
a whole month to respond. We cannot know that in advance. We're waiting, too.
Q. How long will it take?
A. I don't know. — That is why we don't ask for money up front.
That's why we don't email you if nothing is happening. We're waiting, too.
Q. What are the chances of success?
If a publisher fails to respond to us, then there is nothing we can do.
They may respond in a week, a month, or never.
We have no control over their customer service.
We are at the mercy of whoever opens their mail, or whoever reads their e-mail,
or whoever answers their telephone. — Just as you would be.
Publishing companies fold, or go bankrupt, or merge, or get bought out, all the time.

Beware: There are many songs using the same title!
Researching the right song is difficult because there are
so many duplications of titles and all their variations.
Titles cannot be copyrighted. — As a result, there are many songs titled, for example,
"Sunday Morning," "Stay," "P.S. I Love You," "Don't Walk Away," "My Girl," etc.
So you must be as specific as possible about the details which will tell one song from another!
Please fill out the form below. If you're lucky, we'll find it.
FIND MY SONG
In the "Song detail" box, type the title of the song, and whatever information you know about the song,
