Getting Started

Stanton’s Digital Delivery system is set up so that you do not have to create an account in order to purchase a download from us. It’s as easy as reviewing the piece of music and clicking on the “add to cart” button. After your purchase has been added to the shopping cart, you can proceed to and complete the “check out” process. Stanton’s will then send you an email with a “link” directing you to a customized web site where you can edit and print your music.

Printing & Downloading

Hal Leonard: Download & Print
Hal Leonard products now use the Noteflight viewer and many titles can be transposed using the Noteflights header bar.  If a product does not have transposing capabilities the file comes in a print only version (no transposing capabilities).

After you have made a purchase of a transposable piece, make sure your transposition is still in place, then click the print button. 

Once you click on the download icon, Noteflight will show that a PDF is being created.  Depending on which browser you are using it will ask if you want to “open” or “save” the file to your computer. 

*note: Chrome will automatically download the file to your downloads folder. 

Alfred files: Print Only
You will only be allowed to print one page as a sample. Once you have purchased a download, you will have the right to print the entire score for the authorized number of times that you purchased. If you purchase only one copy, you are only authorized to print one copy. If you purchase multiple copies, then you will be authorized to print multiple copies.

Please have your printer set up and ready to go: be sure that your printer is turned on, contains paper and ink, and is plugged into your computer correctly. If you do run out of paper, do not turn your printer off, just put more paper into the printer and continue. Also, make sure that you have made any instrument or transposition changes before you start printing.

Why doesn't the music that I printed contain all the verses/lyrics/notes that I was expecting?

Some formats - often Piano/Vocal and Piano/Vocal/Guitar - are not transcribed exactly from the recording. Publisher sometimes simplify these arrangements on purpose to make them more accessible to a variety of musicians. Look for distinctions such as “Easy Piano,” “Big Note,” “Easy Guitar,” etc., to indicate an easier or condensed version of the original.

Any item designated as a “lead sheet,” is rarely more than one page in length, and will usually include only lyrics, chord symbols and the melody line of the song.

If you are not able to find the arrangement that you want, please contact us at 1-800-42-MUSIC during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) or use contact form

Why do I lose transpositions I make in the piece when I move off the page?

Because each Noteflight file is read-only and cannot save or transfer any information, a transposition will only appear on the page which you first make it. If you leave that page and return, you will find that any changes you had made to the file will have “reset” to the default characteristics. Before printing a piece of music, check to ensure that all your transpositions/changes are as you want them, and then print.

I bought a digital file, but my printer won't work. What should I do?

Prior to printing, please check that your printer has paper, ink or any other components necessary for successful printing. Because you will be able to access your order through email, you do not have to print your order from the same computer that you used for purchasing. You do not have to print on the same day that you purchase. If you suspect that you will not be able to print from a certain machine at a certain time, you can wait until conditions are optimal for completing the print-out of your purchase.
