Music, Maintenance, and More!

Digital Raider Band Music Library

IMSLP Website (Free Music!)

Select your instrument and have fun searching lots of music written by composers who are now in the Public Domain!

Penders

Penders is a local music company, located in Denton! Feel free to peruse online or take a trip to the store to buy some music - they have method books, solo music, and fun pop tunes!

JW Pepper

Want to buy some fun popular music or a challenging solo? JW Pepper is used nationwide by band directors all over the place! (They also sometimes have more resources than Penders, but shipping can tend to be slower)
