About Croft Music

Free Music?

Yes, that's right. Many of the pieces on this site are available free of charge. If you like one of these pieces and you want to download the score and parts, then you can do so free of charge. I would however ask you to make a donation to a charity of your choice, but whether you do or not is entirely up to you. Amount? You know how much music costs these days, so £5 or so would be reasonable. My preferred charity is Alzheimer's: you can link to it here

Although the music is free, I would ask you to respect the copyright on all the pieces, and download only for the use of your own band.  No reselling, please.

Other pieces are available from other publishers, and links are provided where appropriate. These pieces are sold commercially.

If you really just want to have a printed set of score and parts, just email me chris@croftmusic.co.uk and I'll give you a price for the piece you want.

 

Viewing and printing scores

The scores have all been prepared using Sibelius software. You can view and download the scores by clicking on the the red and white PDF icon  next to the item on the catalogue page. If you want to download a zip file of the parts, click the appropriate purple PDF icon. 

  

 Audio

I've included audio tracks of pieces, some rendered from the Sibelius scores, some played by bands. There are also a few links to playlists on the Soundcloud site.

There also a few "Music Minus One" scores on the site allowing you play a solo with accompaniment. These are indicated with MMO providing a link to the appropriate page.
