Music history

Coming soon!

Exploring music

This Music Exploratorium is fascinating fun! Explore instrument origins, mix rhythms and musical memes, and more!

Free sheet music

The Petrucci Library has thousands of public domain works available for free pdf download and some recordings also available for free. If the piece you're looking for is pre-1930, it's probably on here for free!
D'Net's Primary Music Page has several simplified arrangements of LDS primary songs for piano. On the left there is a link to her "pre-reading" songs, which are simplified even further.
I Can Play It! These simplified LDS primary songs originally appeared in the Friend magazine.
Frontiernet's Simplified Primary Music is yet another resource for simplified LDS primary songs.
Smurthwaite Song is my favorite resource for simplified LDS music. They keep all of their songs in the same key as the original, which I think is wonderful! Links to their collections are at the bottom of the page.

Sheet music sellers
