New Year, New Look! 18 June, 2018

new-year-new-lookNotice anything different about us?

We’ve launched our newly redesigned website for musicians and educators to compare all music options, organize titles for personal and professional use, and share their passion for musical expression. The new website is designed to improve your search results and reduce research stress.

“We’ve been working on this website for three years now. The features we are most excited for are the advanced search bar and music-specific filters that offer you more opportunities to find sheet music that fits your educational or performance goals,” said David Ginter, technical manager.

Our search bar is optimized for music specific searches. You can search by instrument, voicing, keyword, full title, composer, artist, arranger, series, or catalog number. However, remember – less is more. If you want to be even more specific, click on our advanced search and type in as much information as you have.

CaptureIf you still have too many results after hitting enter, click on the photo to the left to reveal the filter! All you’ll have to do is chose the tab you want and it will grow to show you how every item is grouped. Say you searched the word “Star,” but you only want to see SAB music – the voicing tab will tell you how many SAB selections are in this search.

We are also introducing new Social Media and Reprise pages. These pages archive our social and email announcements to allow our non-social media users access to our news and product recommendation. You can check in with the Social Media page for a weekly snapshot of what’s happening at Stanton’s and easily follow us without ever logging in.

You can stop scrolling back months at time to find that email with that title you can’t remember the name of, but you know would be perfect! Visit our Reprise page and only look through our emails without any distractions.

“The website is a resource where music directors can easily see, listen, and learn new products that best fit their ensemble needs. What we’ve created is a large music library database. With that database we can help directors and musicians compare ideas, organize their selections, and share with their ensemble and the audiences they reach,” says President, Eric Strouse.

EVERYBODY PLAYS: Guitar Ensembles 26 September, 2017

recommended by Barb M., Keyboard and Folk Music Specialist

g1043Looking for exciting music for guitar ensembles in the classroom or studio? The FJH series “Everybody’s Guitar Method” has two great sets of guitar ensembles perfect for up to six players. The arrangers, Philip Groeber and Matthew Joy, have written parts at varying skill levels to accommodate as many players as possible. Recordings are included to assist the student in the important skills of accurate note playing and rhythm.

“Everybody’s Guitar Ensembles” is designed to teach guitarists how to perform well with other musicians – a valuable school for students as they learn! All pieces in this book are adaptable to either pick-style playing or classical technique, and have been carefully graded so that beginning students may participate very early in their music training. The easiest ensemble uses all quarter notes (except for the final note), with each performer playing natural notes on only one string (each part using a different string). New concepts such as sharps, flats, chords, and other rhythm values are introduced gradually throughout the book.

EVERYBODY PLAYS! #1 includes “Amazing Grace,” “Go, Tell It On the Mountain,” “Hope It’s Santa,” “Look At the Stars,” and “Mary Ann.” EVERYBODY PLAYS #2 includes “Blues for Fela,” “El Condor Pasa,” “Fur Elise,” “Ja-Da,” and “Relentless Rocker.”

How to Write Guitar Tab 27 June, 2016

00-45294recommended by Barb M., Keyboard and Folk Music Specialist

Tablature for fretted string instruments was common in the Renaissance and Baroque eras, and is still in use today. It’s handy because no matter what, the strings are always in the same place, and so are the frets. The strings are numbered from high to low, 1-2-3-4-5-6. The frets are numbered from the nut up the fingerboard.

How to Write Guitar Tab shows how to write the tablature including rhythms, and how to apply modern notation for things like whammy bar, bending, and slides. This is especially helpful when the guitar is in an alternate tuning, such as DADGAD. This is a great resource to help learn how to write sheet music for guitar, and how to read tab as well as write it.

Why Does Copyright Law Matter? 01 June, 2016

copyrightrespectfully offered by Dan C., Orchestra Music Specialist

If you are reading this, you are probably a musician or associate with musicians. When you are a musician or hang with musicians, you begin to think that everyone is probably involved in music in one way or another. But, we musicians are really a fairly finite group of people.

It has been speculated that if you were to gather all people in the United States who make their living in the music industry (whether creating it, performing it, recording it, writing it, teaching it, publishing it, selling it, making and repairing instruments that play it etc), you would end up with about the same amount of people as are employed by the Kellogg’s Company – you know, the cereal and snack food folks. Yeah – a pretty finite group!

It seems unlikely that anyone involved in this tight-knit music community would intentionally keep their fellow musicians from trying to make a living. And yet, that’s what you do when you copy sheet music without permission. Sheet music is property – like a trumpet, violin or a microphone – but it’s intellectual property, which can be a bit nebulous. Basically, only the Copyright Holder has the “right” to “copy” their work. When you copy music without permission from the copyright holder, you are actually stealing it.

When you copy music without a second thought, that means the music is not being sold. Consequently, the music retailer and all their employees lose income, the music publisher and all their employees lose income, and, perhaps most tragically, the composer loses income. Your fellow musicians are being deprived of their ability to make a living.

So not only are you breaking the law by copying music, you are keeping your brothers and sisters in this finite musical community from doing what they love to do: be a musician. If they can’t make a living at it, they may have to leave and do something else. And the musical world becomes an even smaller place.

So don’t copy music without permission – it’s not only illegal, it’s immoral. Let’s make sure the livelihood of our music community is secure so we can all continue to make music – that thing we love to do!
