30 days to try before you buy.
Need time to try it out? Schools, churches and community groups can ask for "music on approval" and we'll give you an extra 30 days to examine a copy of the music. Need more time? Just ask!



"The fact that I can order music on approval and pay after I have returned the music that does not work for my group is a huge benefit to my music dollar. Thank you for all your assistance that you offer to those of us in areas that are unable to view music any other way. We sincerely appreciate it!! "
-Janis H, Choir Director, Robinson, KS

"Limited budget? If so, we know you must order carefully. Our approval service enables you to select only music you are sure to use."
