Desk Copy Requests

Alfred Music is able to send desk copies in accordance with the following guidelines:

  • If you are interested in a free copy for review in determining whether or not you will use an Alfred Music book for a class, this would be considered a perusal copy request, not a desk copy request. Please see our perusal copy policy below.  

  • One complimentary desk copy will be sent for each teacher who is instructing a class that requires the text. The desk copy will be the same as the student copies of the book- it will not be a teacher’s resource guide. Please note that we are unable to send desk copies of software, teacher handbooks, audio materials (such as CDs) or MIDI disks.

  • The desk copy will be sent with the intention that it shall remain the property of the school or institution that it is sent to and should not be taken with any teacher or graduate assistant upon their departure from the institution. The desk copy should then be transferred to the professor or graduate assistant who will be taking the former teacher's place.

  • Alfred Music will send new desk copies at its discretion if additional sections requiring a larger number of teachers are offered or in special situations.

  • All desk copy requests must be submitted in writing on school letterhead to:

Alfred Music
Attn: Customer Service/Desk Copy
PO Box 10003
Van Nuys, CA 91410

  • Each request must include the title of the selected text(s), the ISBN if possible, the name(s) of all teachers who will be receiving the text, and the number of students expected to enroll in the class. All shipments must be sent directly to a school address.

Perusal Copy Requests

At this time, Alfred Music is not able to offer materials for review. You may request a perusal copy from a distributor that carries our products, such as JW Pepper (800-345-6296) or contact your local dealer for their perusal policy.

Public Relations

For all press inquiries relating to Alfred Music artists, authors, or clinicians, please contact: pr@alfred.com.

Submissions

Manuscript submissions not specifically requested by one of Alfred Music's acquisition editors are considered unsolicited and will be reviewed under the following guidelines:

  • Alfred Music will review unsolicited manuscripts in the following areas only: concert band, jazz band, school choral, orchestra, percussion methods, and music classroom. Manuscripts are to be addressed to the editorial attention of one of these areas (e.g., Attn: Concert Band Editor).

  • Manuscripts are to be submitted in a manner consistent with notation for the product type (e.g., band and orchestra works should be submitted in score form). Lead sheets or song lyrics will not be reviewed. A CD recording is recommended.

  • Send a copy of the manuscript. Do not send the original or your only copy. Submissions are to be original material or arrangements in the public domain. Arrangements of copyrighted material or arrangements of pop songs will not be reviewed.

  • Submit both a printed copy of the manuscript and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the address listed below. Manuscripts lacking return postage will be discarded. Recordings without a copy of the manuscript will not be reviewed and will be discarded. Manuscripts sent via e-mail will not be reviewed.
