Instant access to full PDF perusal scores of over 7,500 works
Which works are included in the Digital Library?
We are progressively working to have the sheet music collection of the AMC included in the Digital Library. Currently over 7,500 works are available, with new scores added each week.
If an item you are after is not currently included in the Digital Library, you will be provided with a link enabling you to request that it be added. Our staff will typically process these requests within two business days, after which the sheet music will be available to download from our website.
In the case of published and out of print works, these will often not be able to be added to the Digital Library for copyright reasons.
How do I access the Digital Library?
Once logged in, accessing an item from the Digital Library is as simple as clicking on links which are made available when viewing the web page for a particular score on the AMC website. You can also browse the entire collection of music available in the Digital Library.
How many 'loans' am I able to make?
Members are able to borrow 30 score files each month from the Digital Library. Secondary School institutional members are able to borrow 50 score files each month. If you need to access more than your monthly quota, you can purchase extra credits which will enable you to download additional perusal scores.
What file format does the Digital Library use?
Sheet music in the Digital Library is downloaded as PDF files and simply requires your computer or mobile device to be able to view the latest version of the PDF format.
These files are watermarked with the name of the 'borrower' and include security mechanisms which prevent the file from being opened after the 'loan period' of three weeks. To access a file after this period you must download the sheet music again from the AMC website.
Can I print sheet music downloaded from the Digital Library?
Yes. Printed music includes watermarks identifying the sheet music as a perusal-only copy which may no longer be used after the 'loan period'. Any printed copies must be destroyed or discarded after the three-week loan period; retaining any such copies is illegal.
Can I use sheet music downloaded from the Digital Library for performance?
No. Music accessed through the Digital Library is for perusal/research purposes only and may not be used for public performance or for performance in an examination, competition or any other such occassion.
You must purchase a copy of any sheet music you wish to perform and may be required to
obtain a licence from APRA.
