Bluegrass: Pickin' and Grinnin' to the Sounds of Summer

While Jazz may be the only (disputably) American art form, the roots of traditional, and authentically American music, are deeply embedded in the hills and farms of the early colonies. Mountain Music, Country Music, or Bluegrass all called for picking up easy-to-find instruments and singing songs about daily life. This genre of music has gone through many iterations and evolutions in its history,...

Music Theory Online: A Journal of Criticism, Commentary, Research, and Scholarship

Edited by Thomas Koozin (a professor of music theory at the University of Houston), Music Theory Online has been online since 1993. Each issue usually contains several full-length scholarly articles, commentaries on previous works, and other like...

Essentially, every entry can by edited by any concerned visitors, and entries can contain pieces of sheet music, a MIDI...
Mutopia Project

Modeling itself after Project Gutenberg, this volunteer project aims to make copyright-free musical scores available to everyone. Although copyright on a score expires 70 years after the composer's death, music publishers retain copyright on their typeset editions. Thus, the only legal way to copy this music is to write it out or typeset it yourself and allow others to make copies. This is...
