Welcome

The New Music USA Online Library is a vast and comprehensive digital database that contains over 57,000 works by more than 6,000 composers, and includes over 14,000 media samples (recordings and scores).

The Online Library was created by the American Music Center, and, after many evolutions, continues today under the guidance of New Music USA.
