All the music is from/in the public domain and copyright does not apply to your usage and performance of the music. The site offers a maximum download of two pieces per day due to bandwidth limitations but offers the ability to purchase a CD with all of their music for the reasonable price of $19.99- not a bad price.
I appreciate the simplicity of the site. It’s not overly crowded with ads and is very easy to navigate the various screens. Before you purchase another “edition” of a classic, check the Sheet Music Archive to see if it is available. Doing so just might save you time and money- something most musicians don’t in abundance! :)
