How to Download

We are proud to provide you with 100% digital, downloadable sheet music. Here, you'll find all of the latest Sheet Music Direct sheets.

To begin, simply download and install the free Scorch browser plug-in by clicking the logo below. Scorch is the free software which lets you view, play, customize and print Sibelius scores on the internet.

When you have found the music you want by clicking the Digital Sheet Music button, you may preview the first page of the song to see how it will look. If you wish to purchase the music, click the Add to Cart link found on the left-hand side of the sheet's preview page.

If you have never purchased from SheetMusicDirect.us, you will be required to set up a new account. Your account information contains your personal billing details, which are kept private to you through the use of a password that you select.

Your account also keeps track of your order history, which you can log in and access at any time to view all the music you have purchased from us, and print out those scores you haven't yet printed.

Once you have purchased a sheet, you will now be able to view all of the pages, play back all of the music, and adjust the tempo. This means you can now see how a purchased sheet will transpose before you print it. You can even use the online Scorch file as an aid for learning to play the song.

What do I need to use and print digital sheet music?

To provide the maximum amount of musical functionality possible, we use Sibelius Scorch® technology to display our songs. Scorch is a free plug-in which lets you view, play and print Sibelius scores on the Internet.
