Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group welcomes submissions pertaining to music and the performing arts

web site

As a first step in submitting a manuscript, we recommend that you send a book proposal consisting of:

A letter describing the purpose and audience of your book, along with your background and qualifications; please indicate which word-processing software you use as we ask that final manuscript be submitted on disk
An outline or table of contents and an estimate of the length of the completed manuscript in numbers of words or double-spaced pages
A sample chapter or two, printed out (no electronic file transfers, please)
Sample illustrations as well as an estimate of the total numbers and types (for example, pen-and-ink artwork for line drawings, black-and-white glossy photographic prints, camera-ready music examples) of illustrations planned for your book
Your schedule to complete the book

Generally, we ask authors to submit book proposals early in the writing process as this allows us to give editorial advice during the development phase and cuts down the amount of revisions needed later.

Due to the large volume of submissions, you may not receive a response from us. If you wish to have the materials you submit returned to you, please so indicate and include return postage.

Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group does not accept any songs, sheet music, musical scores, music manuscripts, or recordings for publication consideration.

Very best wishes for the success of your writing project.
