I don’t want to talk about this too much, but today I found out that my piano/bass teacher that I’ve been learning from for 10 years had his house robbed last Thursday. I’m really upset by this. He had a bunch of stuff stolen from his home including an electric bass guitar and its amp. They also stole his briefcase, which he has been using for years to teach with, too. I can’t really explain how it feels to get robbed because it’s horrific. He works so hard for all of his things and he gives back all the time. It’s not like he makes so much money that it’s okay for him to lose a couple of things… I’m so mad.
If you think it’s funny to steal other people’s stuff, then I really hope you don’t read my blog. I would rather prefer you stay far away from me. It’s so disrespectful.
OKAY, so this isn’t a regular blog post and I hope it’s okay if I rant just for today. I am so upset by some companies or other websites that are charging for sheet music. Sheet music IS public domain. Chopin didn’t intend for his music to be sold by these companies. He wrote tons of music and it’s wrong to make your own profit off of his work. These companies probably can’t even write their own music if they tried. They’re lucky that these composers are not around to sue all the money from them. Students, parents, and teachers are looking to find sheet music to develop their playing. How is it fair to charge $2 for a piece of sheet music? I understand everyone wants to make money, but this is not the right way. Unless you are making your own music or making your own content, then please don’t sell other people’s stuff. I am so frustrated that I have to heavily search the internet to find a Chopin etude. They can’t possibly think that this is the right thing to do. Scribd is also a culprit at this. All of this music should be public domain. I hate that people are trying to monetize over everything. If you are a parent, teacher, or student, please be aware of these websites. Sheet music should be completely FREE. It should be illegal to sell a copy of Beyonce’s sheet music for the piano on the internet. It takes no effort for these people to use the sheet music. And that gives them NO right to sell it. I’ll show you some examples:
Please be careful. You shouldn’t have to pay for sheet music. If you want my help finding any music, just comment below or subscribe. Thank you 🙂
