Frequently Asked Questions

A: Founded in 1947, Hal Leonard has grown from a family run retail store to the world’s largest and most innovative print music publisher. We primarily sell to distributors, music stores and book stores. We encourage you to contact your local music retailer to purchase our products. If they do not have what you are looking for in stock, they can certainly special order it for you.

To make it easier than ever to obtain our products, we’re happy to provide a shopping cart feature on our site that lets you peruse our titles and then “check out” by choosing either your favorite local store or an online retailer.

When you are ready to check out, click the shopping cart at the top of your screen. You will then be able to review and revise your order. If you’re done shopping, click on either “Buy Now from Music Retailer” or “Buy Now from Internet Retailer.” Based on your choice, you will see a list of dealers you can choose from.

Selecting “Buy Now from Music Retailer” will bring up a geographical list of options. Simply select your desired retailer, fill out the billing and shipping information and your items will be shipped directly to you. 

Selecting “Buy Now from Internet Retailer” will bring up a list of participating Hal Leonard online retailers. Simply click on the site of your choice and the contents of your shopping cart will automatically transfer to their cart where you can confirm your order and complete your purchase.

A: We're sorry, but once a product is out-of-print, we must destroy it and it is no longer available through us. There is a very slim possibility that a retailer may still have a copy or two in stock, but we have no way of knowing which retailers stock the product you may be looking for.

A: Please note that licensing requests take 4-6 weeks for processing, however we do take contest dates into consideration and turn photocopy requests around quicker.  If you submitted a request through our licensing/copyright website then a confirmation email was sent to you.  To follow up directly with our copyright department please reply to your confirmation email.

A: To get a replacement for your damaged or defective product, please contact the music retailer you purchased the item from. The retailer may have a copy in stock that they can give you or they will contact us on your behalf for the replacement.
