Thanks to the band community the Library continues to grow. Vintage music in print is being donated. We continue to scan old music–we post both old and new editions each month. Friends of the library send missing pages, and volunteers create transposed parts for modern bands. It’s this spirit of generosity that is making this heritage project truly “The band library for musicians, by musicians!”
In this third edition of the web site we are trying to make the Library easier to browse and also easier to search. And, we continue to improve our catalog to help you find what you are looking for. Let us know how we can improve.

We have many good pieces that lack transposed parts for modern bands. They need a C Piccolo/Flute part transposed from the original Db Piccolo, and transposed F Horn parts from the original Eb Alto horns.
We have been encouraging band directors, music librarians and others to share their suggestions for Golden Age band music that is fun to play and pleasing to audiences.
