We are a small group of singers and musicians who have found a large amount of sheet music online. We see these as historical documents; cultural artifacts that have been preserved over time. We use modern technology to hear the musical arrangements and demonstrate these songs vocally.
It is thrilling to excavate a long forgotten gem that still has value. If you love to explore music and want to discover more songs, join us. You can learn this new way to sing and become a sheet music singer yourself!
We pair sheet music pdfs found online with midi files. Each singer chooses a song from the alphabetical title list then uses the pdf and midi to learn the song. The song vocal is recorded with the midi and is output as an mp3. The result is uploaded to the appropriate song page. Each audio recording is made into a video for YouTube.
We try not to duplicate our efforts in order to cover more and more unique songs. This is an ongoing process. Eventually this collection of song demos will grow quite large and be a wonderful resource for the world.
We give you pdfs for hundreds of sheet music songs on this website. Follow these steps to see them:
