Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

Is the sheet music on PianoSongDownload.com safe to download?

Yes, all of the sheet music and resources on PianoSongDownload.com are safe to download. I am a piano teacher who simply wants others to experience the joy of playing the piano. I have composed and/or arranged all of the pieces on Piano Song Download to assure that visitors are not breaking any copyright laws or downloading any viruses.

I’m looking for free sheet music for popular songs. Will you add them to PianoSongDownload.com?

Popular songs are protected under copyright laws and require payment. It would be illegal for me to offer any sheet music that isn’t in the public domain, or hasn’t been composed or arranged by myself. I recommend visiting SheetMusicPlus.com for popular sheet music downloads.

Why are you giving away all of your sheet music for free?

I found that creating an e-commerce site required professional web designing skills (which I don’t have), and resulted in a lot of stress dealing with keeping financial transactions secure. Once I switched to an all-free website I was able to focus more on composing which is my true joy in life. Full disclosure: I earn advertising revenue when a visitor clicks on any of the ads on my site.

If the music is free, why is there a copyright symbol on every piece of sheet music?

I have put the copyright symbol on all of the music on my site to give me legal protection from someone copying my arrangements and making money off of my work. Everything from my site is legal for you to use as long as you don't try to sell my sheet music or use them on your own site. The original tunes are public domain, but my arrangements of them are owned by me. Basically, I want to share my music for free, but I don't want someone else making money on them.

Can I put your sheet music into an ebook and offer it online?

No, all downloads of my music need to come from www.PianoSongDownload.com. It is violating copyright laws if you use my music for your own works. You are welcome to print out my music for your own use.

Can I put your music on my blog or website?

You are welcome to promote my music on your blog or website, but you must provide a link back to www.PianoSongDownload.com for the viewer to download or print the sheet music. Printing directly from your site is a violation of copyright laws.

Can I use your sheet music in a music class or private lesson I’m teaching?

Yes, you are welcome to use my music in a private piano lesson or group music class as long as you don’t charge the students for the music. I love to hear how my music has helped students, so please send me a message on my contact us form if my music has helped your students.

Can I perform your sheet music on YouTube?

Yes, if you credit Julie Lind as the composer and have a link to www.PianoSongDownload.com in the description.

Do I need certain software to download your free sheet music?

Yes, you will need software that can open a PDF file. You can get free PDF software from Adobe here

I have a student entering a festival or competition. Will the judges let me use sheet music from PianoSongDownload.com?

1. Name of organization and event

2. Student’s full name

What is a Lead Sheet?

A lead sheet is a simplified piece of music which typically includes only the melody, chord symbols and sometimes lyrics. The typical way to perform a lead sheet is to play the melody with your right hand and the chords with the left hand. Many performers improvise by adding harmony notes in either hand to make the piece sound like a standard piece of sheet music. Lead sheets are often found in collections called “Fake Books”. They are called “fake” because performers are often able to fool the audience into thinking they have the full piece of music in front of them when they are really only looking at the melody and chord symbols.
