A Marketplace for Inclusive Music
Leading Tones Music is dedicated to bringing high-quality, inclusive music to band and orchestra directors across the world. Many performing groups, whether at the college, high school, or community level, have a variety of experience levels represented in their membership. This kind of diversity can often pose a challenge for directors when programming music. We aim to mitigate that challenge by filling in gaps in the repertoire and providing music that engages with people of all walks of life, experience levels, and stages of musical education.
An Intuitive Online Shopping Experience
We have established a “one-stop shop” for mixed-ability-level music where customers enjoy a 100% online browsing and distribution experience. Each product page comes with a perusal score and an audio recording, so you can make sure that a piece meets your group's unique needs before you buy it. When you've made your selection, just order, download, and print!
A New Repertoire
Our projects bring composers, conductors, and performers together to write, direct, and perform innovative new music. We are committed to helping emerging composers to gain visibility by commissioning new music, by providing a platform for its sale and promotion, and by facilitating meaningful collaborations between composers and their communities.
A Fair Deal
In many publishing agreements, artists see as little as 10% of profits from sales of their music. You can rest easy knowing that our featured composers get their fair share.
