There are 3 parts to the search facility, which can be used together with each other!
Top 2 search boxes:
Generally, the less information you put into the top two search boxes, the more likely it is you will find the piece you are looking for, as it can perform a wider search through our music stock.
The search looks for the words you enter, in any order, in the product's title. In addition we store the title in the original language for many products to give you every chance of finding it!
However, if you can't find something straight away, these tips may help:
Shorten words to allow multiple variations by language e.g. search 'sonat' for 'sonata' or 'sonate'.
Consider different ways the title might be listed, especially with numbers and languages e.g. 'Two Duets', '2 Duos' or 'Zwei Duette'; 'Concerto' could be 'Konzert'.
When searching for opus numbers, just type the number itself.
Don't type publisher or editor in the title.
You can simply select the grade you want from the dropdown, and it will list all pieces for that grade.
Tick as many of the specific instrument-family or instrument boxes as you want to find music that includes all the instruments you have ticked.
You can use these methods together, for example if you put 'conc' in Title box, 'moz' in the 'Composer' box, and tick 'Clarinet' in the instrument section, it will return all examples of the Mozart clarinet concerto, but not the oboe or bassoon concerti.
