Be sure to include:
Parts (if you are engraving it)
Cover page and/or front matter (PDF, not required)
Recording of the piece (mp3, wav, aiff – live recording not necessary)
Description (2 - 3 sentences at least)
If you want us to engrave you music, also include:
The source files (.musx or MusicXML)
The music itself should be of high quality. While this can be very subjective, the music should be finished, well orchestrated, and should not appear amateurish.
The engraving of a piece should be of high quality, and the defaults of most notation softwares won't cut it. The notation should follow the Norton Manual of Music Notation and the presentation should be clean and professional. "House Styles" are allowed, just make sure they are well designed. If you don't wish to take the time to engrave your music well, we will do that for you at a fair price. Here'a a more detailed explanation.
You should have all the rights to publish the piece. No arrangements of copyrighted pieces accepted without explicit written permission from the copyright holder. Arrangements of public domain pieces are allowed.
