Music Online

By Administrator | 22 October 2019

For music students, teachers and parents of students, finding good music is hard. Finding sheet music is even more of a challenge. Currently music students have a few options. We can go to libraries, buy online, prowl second hand stores, maybe the occasional book sale event. Options are limited.

State Library of Queensland provides access to a unique database, Music Online. A music database which includes sheet music, video, audio and reference material. It’s the perfect tool for musicians, music students and general music lovers. The database is also completely free to use by State Library members.

You can find specific pieces of music using the many filters or browse by genres, performers composers and more. The database is great for new music students who aren’t certain where they should start. It also lists all the details surrounding pieces that are available, making referencing or finding other similar works a simple task.

The music genres and style available on Music Online are also quite vast. Choir pieces, contemporary, jazz, pop, classical, film and many more.

If none of these genres caught your interest, there are other subsets of the databases which focus on specific types of music, as well as dance and theatre resources.

So perhaps when you next need to locate music and performing arts resources, give Music Online a go first.

To use this database all you need to do is become a member of the State Library, which is a simple and free.

Find other music databases on offer via State Library of Queensland.
