Our ambition is to make all of the world’s sheet music available through the Enote library. This will make it easy for any musician to access the scores they need, and benefit from our smart AI features that make study and practice more productive.
However, there is more written music in the world than any one person could play in a lifetime. Collecting, prioritizing and digitizing all of these pieces is a huge undertaking, so our team are working through our musical history systematically to reach our goal.
This article explains what music is currently in our library, what will be added next, and why some works are not yet available.
What’s in the library?
Our library contains the majority of Solo, Chamber and Vocal works written between the baroque to late romantic era, plus key Orchestral and Stage works.
Our team are currently focused on expanding the works and scores available in our Orchestral and Stage collection, and will also be adding Choral works to the library in the near future.
What about modern works and genres?
The scores we currently offer in our library exist in the public domain in most regions^. This means that anyone is free to view and play from these scores without paying royalties to the original composer.
The work of composers like Shostakovich, Britten or Philip Glass are still protected by copyright, as are the majority of published arrangements and modern genres like Jazz, Pop and Rock.
Though these works aren’t in our library yet, we’re already in talks with publishers on how to let Enote users access these scores while ensuring composers are paid their royalties. Until these agreements are reached, you can add any copies of these pieces that you own into your library using our Import feature.
What about rare works and other “hidden gems”?
We definitely plan to make rare and lesser-known works available through Enote. In fact, we’re particularly excited to do so, as we believe our advanced search filters will help musicians discover incredible pieces of music that have been buried by time.
However, please keep in mind that digitizing scores takes time and precision. Making our library truly comprehensive is a marathon rather than a sprint, but it’s one that we are determined to finish.
Can I add my own works to Enote?
Yes you can! Both Free and Premium users can use the Import feature to enhance our library with all the scores, arrangements, reference material, and other files they need. Learn more about how to add your own works to Enote here.
If you are a composer interested in distributing your music through Enote, we’re happy to say this is something we plan to support in the future. However, please remember that we are at an early stage of our journey, so this is still a way off.
To stay up to date with the latest announcements, please follow our social channels and keep an eye on our email updates.
Can I make repertoire requests?
Our team are always keen to hear what repertoire you would like to see in our library. Just send us an email with suggested composers or pieces, and our musicology team will consider this in their prioritization.
^Be aware that copyright laws differ in some countries, which means a work may be in the public domain in one country, and copyright protected in another. Enote currently only allows you to open works free of copyright protection in your region. Some regions (such as the USA) will have access to a different number of works based on local copyright limitations.
