Boosey and Hawkes, Faber Music, Music Sales and UMP are among the larger music publishers that now have impressive web sites on the Internet. These sites are making an increasingly significant contribution to the promotion and sales of their music, and there are now few in the ‘serious’ music industry who would dispute the growing importance of the Internet.
Until now smaller publishers wanting to establish their own presence on the Internet have been faced with considerable financial, technical and organisational challenges. It is these companies that have the most to gain from literally millions of people across the world having access to information and examples of their publications. Printed Music Worldwide is a new Internet ‘domain’ that is being set up to give publishers their own web pages for £180 per annum. This includes a regular updating service and links to other relevant sites. The pages can contain sound samples, logo, photographs, cover 'snapshots', music-notation graphics, catalogue information and other text. Most publishers will probably use their pages to focus on a specific area of their catalogue which will lend itself to 'multimedia' presentation, such as educational and Grade Exam listed publications.
Publishers who don't yet have their own Internet connection and e-mail address (or even a computer!) don't need to feel excluded from Printed Music Worldwide; a free ‘virtual’ e-mail address can be provided and any messages or orders received will be forwarded by fax or post.
Printed Music Worldwide is run by Andrew Aird, who has wide music publishing experience and is also behind the highly successful Classical Artists Worldwide domain, which caters for professional soloists and ensembles, and other music publishing sites. Clients can be sure of a helpful, jargon-free response during the setting-up and maintenance of their web pages, and be confident of getting unbeatable value for money!
