How to Create Your Own Free Sheet Music Instantly
What a huge convenience it would be if you found a simple system that could instantly create free sheet music for you every time you needed it. What if you could just search on the internet for a special file that would then turn it into readable sheet music – at the click of a few buttons – legally? What a huge benefit that would be for anyone who wants to learn piano or taking piano classes – to have such a steady supply of piano music.
The idea here is to take a midi file (there are thousands upon thousands of sites that offer free midi file downloads) and then input it into a special software that converts it into readable *and* free sheet music.
Now, this system is only to be used with songs in public domain or out-of-copyright protection. So it won’t work with every single song out there. When searching for MIDI files, be sure to use a site that has secured permission from the creators, publishers and authors to host a midi version of the original song in order to avoid legal trouble. In fact, that’s the one drawback with this system, many midi files are poor quality, or illegally hosted, and pianomusicinfo.com DOES NOT recommend using those.
However, you can still find many sites which have paid their royalty dues and allow you to purchase midi files, or even download them for FREE, allowing this system to work.
From experts to someone who needs a little extra practice, this system can help them create any form of piano sheet music. Every kind of music can be produced instantly and every type of musician can benefit. Piano teachers even recommend it!

Printable Blank Sheet Music
Well, you could always do things by hand, and start your own free sheet music publishing house from your outdoor patio. Just get some blank sheet music paper – we’ll get to that in a sec – and start writing away. I’m always surprised by the amount of people out there searching for printable blank manuscript paper either so that they can notate their own versions of sheet music, or perhaps they are jazz musicians notating their own riffs and variations on popular themes. Or, perhaps the 21st century has created a gigantic influx of music composers and we’re in for a ride of innovative music experiences.
You could always use a professional notation software such as Finale, Encore or anyone of the notation software we recommend to print blank sheet music by just leaving the default score file blank and then printing it out.
But free is free and the freedom to freely choose what’s free must remain free! (There’s a mouthful of wisdom and insight for you)The above image is what blank piano sheet music paper looks like. It’s designed for piano music as the staffs are not distributed evenly along the page. Hence, you can easily add a treble clef to the first line and a bass clef to the second line creating your first joint musical staff. Click on the picture for a larger image.
The Legalities of Free Sheet Music
I just hate writing legal sections and am no lawyer (my writing screams *musician*) so don’t take my advice as the final point in legal matters. The legalities of downloading free piano sheet music have become complicated as so many sites now offer printable sheet music. Numerous websites offer piano music but downloading music legally for free is still quite difficult as these thousands of sites unfortunately break basic copyright laws. To get legal music for free requires a lot of digging. However, the good news, is that you can use software like this and make versions of your sheet music without having to download illegal copies of your desired sheet music.
Pianomusicinfo.com does not recommend downloading any file which may still be under copyright protection. Because copyright protections are very complicated matters, please perform due diligence and consult a lawyer before downloading any free sheet music from the internet.
