193 Pieces by Liszt Added to Piano Street's Sheet Music Library
The latest addition to our already vast piano sheet music library almost doubles the number of pieces by Franz Liszt. Last week, we added 193 pieces by this multifaceted composer, taking a significant step towards our goal of publishing a complete library of the classical piano repertoire. Our Liszt section is now nearly complete, but more will follow - with this extremely productive and hard-working composer-pianist it's hard to know where to stop! Read more >>

Putting Piano Music on the Web
on: December 10, 2003, 10:59:52 AM
I'm really interested in placing recordings of myself and others on my website.  I'm not sure how to get the music off of the minidisc recorder and into my computer.  Or say off of a cassette tape and into my computer.  In the back of my computer there are only little bitty microphone and speaker outputs, no left and right auxilliary inputs (or whatever).  What do I have to do??  Do I need special software also?  And do you know of other pianists who have websites offering their own music to hear??  Thank you so much for your input!!

I think you do need some kind of computer programme because my friend is a singer and she always does this kind of thing.... but I'm not sure how she does it though.... she is back in Iceland now.... :-[

Well, I have no experience with minidisc recorders, but you can do this without special software. Most computers have a "line in" port. Plug whatever you recorded onto into this port (requires a mini-8->mini-8 cable, most likely). Then, launch (if on a pc) Sound Recorder, and press play and record at the same time :P If you're on a mac, then there isn't a utility included for free, and I personally wrote my own that isn't ready for the general public. However, MacUpdate.com and VersionTracker.com are good sources for sound recording apps (some which are free).

This technique requires you to record one track at a time. You then can use most popular MP3 players to convert them to MP3s.
