Classical and Contemporary

The Mutopia Project offers sheet music editions of classical music for free download. These are based on editions in the public domain. A team of volunteers typesets the music using LilyPond software. Why not join them?! See the page on how to contribute for more information.

We also offer a growing number of modern editions, arrangements and new music. The respective editors, arrangers and composers have chosen to make these works freely available.

Usage of the Music

All of the music on Mutopia may be freely downloaded, printed, copied, distributed, modified, performed and recorded. Music is supplied as PDF files for easy printing on either A4 or US Letter paper. The LilyPond source files are also available, which allow you to make your own editions based on ours. Computer-generated audio previews of the music are available as MIDI files, to give you a rough idea of what the music sounds like.

Most of our music is distributed under Creative Commons licenses. Each piece clearly lists what license it is distributed under. For precise details of what each license permits, see the license details page.

Many thanks to Eric Praetzel at the University of Waterloo for the loan of our web space and bandwidth.

Thanks also to all the people who have typeset music so that it can be freely available. Credits to individual typesetters appear with each piece of music on Mutopia.
