Add your piece
You can now add your own scores to 8notes.com by creating a free account and going to the My Music section.
Any scores you wish to upload should be one of the following:
An Original Composition.
An original piece of music you have
written. You should be the sole copyright owner of this piece.
Arrangement of out-of-copyright work.
You have made a new arrangement of
a work that was written before 1923.
A New edition of out-of-copyright
You have created a new edition of a work that was written before
A scanned score of an out-of-copyright work.
work must have been composed before 1923 and the edition must also be
from before 1923. So for example, a work by Beethoven from an edition published
in 1904 is fine, but not from an edition published in 1948.
Please note, you
may not upload scanned scores that you find on other websites unless permission
is explicitly granted. The act of scanning creates a new copyright work and many
of the scanned files found on other websites are therefore in-copyright.

and allow others to download them free of charge. You do however retain any

After submission each piece uploaded goes into our
submissions queue for approval (usually within 24 hours). We will only approve
scores that adhere to copyright-law and other guidelines. We reserve absolutely
the right to withhold approval without explanation. Unapproved scores will not
appear on the 8notes.com site.
Priority will be given to submissions
that include an audio version of the score, either in mp3 or midi format.
