The hot time of summer holidays and vacations is over and in many countries autumn is the time when kids go back to school. One can now hear the sounds of piano and violin coming out of the school windows, and once in a while you may stumble into people carrying music instrument cases of all types and shapes.
MusicaNeo wishes success to all students and teachers in the new academic year and invites everyone to visit the special section of our site “Educational Sheet Music” which is regularly updated. Here we gathered over 14000 music scores recommended by their authors for use in the music learning process. About 1000 music scores in this section are dedicated to those who are making their first steps in mastering the art of music.
Music pieces by contemporary composers are of special interest, as today many music contests for children include in their program compulsory performing of contemporary music. All MusicaNeo users have an opportunity to contact the composer directly and to ask questions concerning the interpretation of the music works placed in the catalogue.
MusicaNeo authors often combine creative work with educational activity. Their professional experience is displayed in own educational music pieces. We would like to point out the high activity of guitar teachers who have published a lot of free sheet music for guitar and guitar ensembles.
It’s also important to mention other valuable materials that can be useful for those on the way to conquer the music Olympus. Links to the relevant sections can be found at MusicaNeo homepage.
MusicaNeo’s educational project came to life due to the joint efforts of our musicians’ community members. We received enormous support from composers and teachers who responded to the call to support music education worldwide. Over a hundred compositions took part in the competition. Twelve most interesting compositions became part of the sheet music book that is now available for free download at MusicaNeo.
Free Blank Sheet Music
During the educational process every musician experiences the need for blank music sheets. At a special page at MusicaNeo you can at any time download for free the necessary music sheets for various sets of instruments. Here you’ll also find the sheets with large scale staves that are handy at music lessons for beginning musicians. In case you haven’t found a sheet with the needed template, please contact us and we’ll add it to the site in a short time.
50 Piano Pieces by Ernst Levy
We can’t help but draw your attention to the unique opportunity that’s available only to MusicaNeo users: our sheet music catalogue contains the music heritage of the brightest representative of the Swiss composition school of the 20th century – Ernst Levy. 50 music pieces that he composed for piano at the beginning of the 50-ies of the last century can be considered one of the most interesting music materials for learning to play piano. Inspired by Bartok’s “Microcosm”, Levy’s cycle did not receive the recognition as broad, even though it deserves it no less. For those who prefer to choose lesser known music pieces for their educational or competitional program, 50 piano pieces by Levy is a true find.
We are once again congratulating all music students and teachers on the beginning of the new academic year – MusicaNeo wishes you success in conquering new creative peaks!
