Sources for Published Music

      One of the frequently asked questions here at the Horn Page is: "Where can I buy such-and-such piece of music?"  Now you don't have to ask anymore!  Scroll down the page to find what you are looking for.
      If you need music in a hurry, you can call around, find out who has it in stock and often get it within a couple days.  Sometimes you can even find out-of-print titles that are no longer available from the publisher, by calling around to find a dealer who still has a copy in stock.
      They are listed alphabetically below, if the company is named after a person, the last name of the person is where you will find it, i.e. Robert King Music is listed under "K."
