We’ve put together a list of four great websites to find free sheet music so whether you play the piano, saxophone, violin, flute, guitar or any other instrument at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level, these free sheet music websites and apps are the best place to start. We’ve summarised what each free sheet music website and app has to offer, and added a handy table of pros and cons.

Let’s get started with, of course, Tomplay!  We offer a variety of sheet music titles for various instruments, from piano and violin to sax and guitar. You can access the sheet music titles directly on our website or download them using our sheet music app, which includes a few free scores to try out too. 

Tomplay offers thousands of classical, pop and jazz sheet music titles with backing tracks so you can learn and play your favourite pieces accompanied by high-quality recordings made by professional musicians. Do you play the piano? With Tomplay you can choose from a myriad of scores for solo piano with the option of practising one hand accompanied by a recording of the other hand, or play in a duet, four-hands or accompanied by an orchestra! 

Or are you a sax or flute player? Well then no need to find a pianist to accompany you any more - you can simply choose one of our many scores with a piano backing track. You'll also find trios, quartets and quintets, as well as pieces with an orchestra to accompany you.

Plus, our pieces are arranged in a variety of levels from beginner and intermediate to advanced so everyone can play their favourite pieces. The Tomplay sheet music app also offers a variety of features to help with learning.

The International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP), also known as the Petrucci Music Library, is a digital library sheet music app for public domain music, i.e., music which is no longer copyrighted, so mainly classical music. The project began in 2006 and its main aim is to make public-domain music accessible online for free. It is available for both iOS and Android. 


                                               Pros                                                Cons
  • Vast music library - It currently has over 698,000 free sheet music titles.
  • It’s a fantastic resource for classical musicians, and you can filter by instrument, composer, time period, and more.

  • There is free sheet music for beginner piano, sax, violin and more.
  • Only non-copyrighted music - you won’t find any pop/rock music in the library. 
  • There are advertisements displayed for several seconds before you gain access to the free sheet music.
  • Unlike other free sheet music apps in this article, IMSLP does not offer interactive features. 

3. Free Scores is a website that offers free sheet music, although they also offer links to paid sheet music with other vendors. The free sheet music section is clearly indicated on the website and the filter section allows you to choose what type of ensemble you’re looking for (trio, quartet, etc.). You can preview the score before downloading it plus many free sheet music titles include an audio download too. Other perks of Free Scores include the vast number of instruments on offer (for example, the bagpipes!) and the user-created arrangements. 

                                            Pros Cons
  • Great selection of free sheet music titles.
  • To access extra features you simply need to sign up for a free member account. 
  • Wide range of instruments (including the bagpipes!) 
  • Mainly classical/contemporary music so no pop/rock.

  • Some scores are used-generated and contain mistakes/are not well-arranged for the instrument.

There is an incredible collection of free sheet music on MuseScore with many pieces being re-arranged by users so there are several levels available and the library is continually growing. However, as the majority of scores are user-made, quality can be a real issue. 


                                          Pros Cons
  • Vast library of free sheet music 
  • Free sheet music app 
  • Users can add their own arrangements so the library is continually growing. 
  • The majority of scores are created by users. Quality is an issue, scores contain many mistakes and are not well arranged for the different instruments. 
  • Most of the scores are too hard to play. 
  • Poor quality MIDI playback, no interactive learning features. 
  • If you want access to all features on offer you need to subscribe.
