Guest blog: Welcome to new Premium Corporate Member Hal Leonard

Hal Leonard Europe is part of Hal Leonard Corporation. Founded in 1947, Hal Leonard is the world's largest publisher and distributor of music performance and instructional materials, with a catalogue of over 220,000 products in both physical and digital form. Hal Leonard represents many of the world's best known and most respected publishers, artists, songwriters, and arrangers. The company is also a major distributor of music gear and technology products, selling and marketing the most popular software, hard goods and accessories available today.

Hal Leonard Europe (HLE) recently moved into new corporate headquarters at 42 Wigmore Street, London, very near the world-famous Wigmore Hall. This is now the base for the company’s senior management as well as editorial, business development, business affairs and sales management teams. HLE is not the first printed music publisher to be based at this location. In 1777, Robert Wornum was printing and selling sheet music at the very same address including music for piano, flute, guitar, harp, violin and voice, and the company is proud to lead the next chapter of the area’s rich musical history.

The Hal Leonard catalogue includes almost every genre and instrumentation imaginable, from classic and contemporary pop (including The Beatles, Queen, Ed Sheeran and Adele) to musical theatre (from Rodgers & Hammerstein to The Greatest Showman) and many of the world’s most renowned classical imprints including Ricordi, Chester Music, Novello & Co., and Alphonse Leduc. Hal Leonard is a leading publisher of choral music, band and ensemble scores, classroom materials and methods and pedagogical resources including Faber Piano Adventures, John Thompson’s Easiest Piano Course and Essential Elements.

The company also produces and distributes a range of instruments, software gifts and accessories, and publishes digital scores via Sheetmusicdirect.com and its Noteflight notation software.
