Ordering, Downloading, and Opening Your Sheet Music: An Overview

Purchasing, downloading and printing your digital sheet music at is an instant, secure, four-step process.

Step one: Find your sheet music Use our search tools to find the unpublished musical theatre song you've been looking for, or maybe even a new song you've never heard of. Add it to your cart, and when you've finished shopping, click "Proceed to checkout."

Step two: Enter billing and payment information If you don't have an account, you'll be prompted to create one. Enter your name, email address and a password to create an account, then fill out your billing and payment information. Everything is completely secure, and you'll complete your order without ever leaving our site. You'll also have a chance to review or edit your order before hitting submit. Please make note of the CREDIT CARD NUMBER YOU USED TO PURCHASE YOUR ORDER.

Step three: Download your sheet music After hitting "submit," you'll receive an email containing links to PDFs of all the sheet music you've purchased. (If you don't receive the email within 5 minutes, check and make sure you're using the same email account you used in your NewMusicalTheatre account profile, and that the email didn't go into your spam folder.) You may also access your PDFs directly from your NewMusicalTheatre account: while still logged in, click on My Account followed by "Download Sheet Music." You'll be able to see all of your purchased sheet music, and even download an entire order as one large combined PDF file by clicking "Download Songbook."

Step four: Unlock your sheet music You'll need the most current version of your preferred PDF reader (such as Adobe Acrobat or Preview) to open the file. Click on the PDF file or open it in the program and you'll be prompted for a password. That password is THE CREDIT CARD NUMBER YOU USED TO PURCHASE YOUR ORDER (with no dashes or spaces). Remember to make note of this number, as you will need it every time you want to open your sheet music. Passwords for previous orders cannot be reset, even if your credit card number is no longer valid. Once your music is unlocked, you may print as many copies as you would like. If your printed music has some text or music cut off on the sides, select "scale to fit" in the print options dialogue box.

Returns & Replacements

Because you are receiving digital sheet music, we have a NO RETURN policy. If, however, there is a problem with your order and you receive a corrupted file or do not receive the file, contact customer service in order to arrange for a replacement file to be emailed to you.

Troubleshooting Orders and Downloads

My credit card number didn’t work as a password. What should I do?

Please make sure you are correctly entering the same credit card number you used to place your order. If you are sure that you are correctly entering the appropriate credit card without dashes or spaces, the problem may be with your PDF software. Older versions of some PDF readers don't allow the password function, which can prevent you from opening your download. To update your PDF software, you can download a PDF reader for free, such as Adobe, Preview (for Mac) or Foxit (for PC), or updates to these programs. If you’ve updated your PDF software and are still unable to open your music, please contact us.

I tried to place an order, but I got taken back to my cart. Was my order processed? 

In most cases, that means your order was not processed. However, before submitting your order a second time, please contact us and we will investigate. 

Why can’t I save my download?

Due to the password function of the sheet music, your PDF reader will not allow you to save your music through the usual “command-S” process. However, the file is saved to your computer automatically through the download process. You can find your sheet music or songbook in your Downloads folder – or any other location on your computer where you can usually find files downloaded from the internet. From there, you can drag your music onto your desktop or into any other folder with your mouse. 

Can you transpose my music? does not offer transpositions at this time. Many popular songs are available for purchase in multiple keys, and more keys are added as requests come in. If you're torn between two different keys and have questions about a range before purchasing a song, please email customerservice [at] and we'd be happy to help you out. 

I never received a confirmation email / My confirmation email does not have a link to download my music. How can I access my download?

If you haven’t received a confirmation email in your inbox, please check your spam folder. Please also make sure you’re checking the same email address associated with your account.

You can access your downloads at any time by logging into your account and clicking “Download My Sheet Music,” which is located near the top of the gray menu bar on the left side of the page (in the “My Account” section of the menu). 

If you cannot locate your downloads within your account and you also did not receive a confirmation email, your order may not have gone through. Please contact us and we'd be happy to confirm whether we've received your order.
