Christmas Sheet Music and Where to Find It Online

So, you're looking for Christmas sheet music. So are a lot of other people according to Overture's search tool. In fact, over 200,000 people searched for Christmas sheet music in October 2006 alone! Good thing you found this article. Let's look at what's available online!


Here, in no particular order, are websites offering Christmas sheet music.


Sheetmusicplus.com


This site has been around forever! And it's the largest sheet music site online period. It's usually the number one destination for online shoppers, but let's look at it and see what it has to offer. The first thing you see is sheet music by Vince Guiraldi. He wrote a Charlie Brown Christmas. The search results are sorted by best selling first. You can then check by price, by alphabet, and by new releases.


Virtualsheetmusic.com


The next site I visited, virtualsheetmusic.com was completely different. Here the first thing you see is a folio titled "Christmas Carols." The navigation is confusing and prices aren't clearly displayed.


Musicnotes.com


This one is an eye-opener! The first thing you see when you enter their Christmas sheet music page is something called "The Christmas Store." You then see categories of sheet music organized by instrument and by Christmas collections. Very nice!


8notes.com


Now we move on to 8notes.com. The first thing you notice when you enter this site is that much of the Christmas sheet music is free! And that's a good thing. There's a section for those who wish to puchase a subscription to all the sheet music on their site - which is quite substantial. It looks like they have 7 pages of free sheet music here. Of course, if you can find what you want for free, it doesn't make sense to buy it. This site is a real winner and deserves to be looked at.


Well, that's my foray into the Christmas sheet music world. My advice? Take your time, look around, and choose the free sites first before paying anything.
