More Free Braille Music Scores #3

This is the THIRD post announcing the availability of a selection of free braille scores.

The response to our last offer was significantly better than the first. And we are gratified.

In the new list we have many new listings and the total number is slightly greater than before.

As before, these are scores that have been received over the years as gifts from individuals, libraries and braille producers.  They are duplicates of titles already held in the music collection.

The scores are free for the asking and will be sent, to anyone, via Free Matter for the Blind, on a first-come-first-served basis.

This actually includes those who might not qualify for our regular services because of geographical location or citizenship. So let nothing hold you back.

Whoever you are or wherever you are, if you can use some free braille music we are trying to offer what you need or want.

The list of currently available scores can be found at this link.  The link takes you to an updated Excel spreadsheet that has about 90 titles.

To claim your choices, please email the Music Section at [email protected] putting “Braille Music Offer” in the subject line. Please identify your selection(s) by control number. And please provide your complete name and address.

The new list is still heavily laden with piano scores, but we really will add more titles and more instruments down the road. We have many hundreds of titles to offer. But you, reader, can help us in selecting new titles to add to the list by letting us know what you might want. Some of you have already done this and we are grateful. But for those who haven’t, tell us your instrument preference, composer preference, or even some particular pieces. You can do this by emailing us at [email protected]. Please.

We welcome your responses and comments. We need your comments and feedback.

Finally, we would ask that you email us back just a quick note confirming that you have actually received some scores.

    Hello,
    I am looking for a piece of music in Braille to put on a wall hanging I am quilting. The song is “Jesus Loves Me”. I have the sheet music and the words already and now want to include a clear vinyl sheet on top of the words with Braille. This wall hanging is for my church when finished. Could you please help me with creating this?
