Frequently Asked Questions
How do I search The Sheet Music Company for the music I'm looking for?
How do I just browse The Sheet Music Company website?
Each page contains a search box at the top of each page. To search our extensive online catalogue for the music you're looking for, just type in a search keyword or phrase into this search box and select the search button. Any matching results will then be shown on the new page which will subsequently be displayed.
Our search facility works on an individual keyword or phrase matching basis and the complete title of each item in our catalogue, as well as all of the tracknames/songlists in our database, will be searched. Your search results will be displayed in alphabetical order, although the sorting order may be changed by selecting a different option from the 'Sort by' drop down list on the search results page.
Can I view just the latest additions that have recently been added to your website?
You can browse our website by selecting one of the category options from the home page or from the menu at the top of each page. Upon selecting a category option, the items in that particular will be displayed.
Some of the pages will allow you to refine your selection further by offering a choice of sub-categories in a 'Filter by' drop down list. Selecting one of these options will restrict the display of items on the page to those contained within that specific category. The numbers displayed in parentheses after each option, for example (121), will indicate the number of items contained within each category.
At the top of each page, you will also find a search box allowing you to search directly for a specified keyword or phrase.
All of the pages on our website which display lists of results or category items will also have a row of pagination options across the bottom of each page. These buttons and links will allow you to scroll the page forwards or backwards to show the next or the previous page of results or category items in the list, if applicable. You may also be able to jump ahead or skip back to an individual page. In all cases, the total number of items in the results or category list will also be displayed at the end of the pagination options across the bottom of each page.
How can I view your popular items?
Yes! Just select a category to view from the home page or from one of the menu options and then look for the 'Sort by' drop down list on the subsequent page. Then just select the 'Most Recently Added' option from this list and the page will automatically re-arrange the items to show the newest releases first.
