The Music Sales Group is an international independent family of music publishing companies. We are major copyright holders in both popular and classical music. These copyrights are maintained by a network of wholly owned worldwide companies in the USA, the UK, Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, and Spain. Within Australia, the creative team in our Sydney office works to best exploit our ever-growing catalogue of exceptional music.
With hundreds of thousands of titles, Music Sales controls an impressive catalogue of songs spanning every genre of popular music. From the late Twenties to today’s chart hits, we control memorable standards, Broadway show tunes, Big Band greats, Rock & Roll, Jazz, Blues, Country, Disco, Rap and Hip-hop, Electronica, New Wave, Modern and Alternative Rock, Reggae, classic love songs, and much more. One of the highlights of the Australian office is our representation of the Arc/Jewel catalogue. The Arc catalogue goes to the very birth of Rock & Roll with writers like Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker and Sonny Boy Williamson and classic songs such as “Johnny B Goode,” “Who Do You Love” and “I’m A Man.”
A significant expansion into serious music began with the purchase in 1986 of G. Schirmer/Associated Music Publishers, America’s preeminent classical music publisher. Founded in 1861, G. Schirmer enjoys a reputation for championing the avant-garde as well as its rich catalogue of important traditional works. G Schirmer Australia also represents composers from other Music Sales companies worldwide, including Chester Music, Edition Wilhelm Hansen, Novello, and Unión Musical Ediciones. Please visit our Composers page and www.schirmer.com.
The G. Schirmer Australia Rental Library is a key resource for Australian performance organisations. We rent music to record, TV, and film companies; orchestras, opera, and ballet companies; and colleges and community groups. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Music Sales is also one of the foremost publishers of printed music, producing sheet music and folios for many of the top names in popular music, instructional and educational material, and illustrated and reference books about music and musical artists.
Music Sales is an ever-evolving resource, committed to nurturing and managing the incredible array of copyrights and artists in our catalogues. Our goal is to provide the finest service to every sector of the musical community. To the songwriters and composers we represent. To the creative teams within the film, television, and advertising industries. To the orchestras and schools who rent music from us. To the music dealers who retail our printed music. And to the countless musicians and music-lovers who enjoy our music every day.
