Sheet Music Plus is an online sheet music retailer owned by Hal Leonard. Through its publishing platform ArrangeMe, you can legally self-publish arrangements of music that have not yet entered the public domain. You can also self-publish arrangements in the public domain and original compositions. After self-publishing via ArrangeMe, your works are automatically made available on Sheet Music Plus and another retailer Sheet Music Direct.
When publishing your music, be sure to label the instrument as "carillon"! This was not possible in the past, so older arrangements may have a different instrument listed or have the phrase "for carillon" in the title. Exercise caution: some scores listed as being for "carillon" may not be intended for carillon as defined by the GCNA.
