Publishing carillon music
Have you finished making an arrangement and would like to publish it? In North America, there are two publishers of carillon music:
Publishing arrangements of copyrighted works
If you would like to publish an arrangement of a copyrighted work, you might consider using the "ArrangeMe" service offered by Sheet Music Plus.
Sharing your work
An alternative to publishing your arrangement or composition is to join Salvator, an online platform created by the Flemish Carillon Association that lets you easily share your own arrangements and compositions with other Salvator members.
