All prices displayed on the website are the full price of the product. Member discounts will be applied at checkout, and reflected in your cart and on your invoice once your member number is applied.

How do I get my member discount?

If you are a member, be sure you enter your 6-digit Member/Associate number by clicking the Promo/Gift Certificate link at checkout and entering your number in the Promo/Gift Certificate box, then select Apply. In order to receive the discount, you will need to do this each time you place an order. Only one discount can be used per order. Discounts do not apply to digital/download versions of sheet music (See Music Rights & Restrictions section below).

You do not need to be a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society in order to purchase from the BHS shop site, although we would love to have you join us! BHS members' dues help create these products and the prices shown reflect discounts for them and their families. Non-member prices are still a tremendous value for our friends and customers who are not members of BHS. If you are interested in joining Barbershop Harmony Society, please visit our website at www.barbershop.org for more information on member benefits!

MUSIC RIGHTS & RESTRICTIONS

Searching for Music

The search function of this website is capable of finding products by partial titles, SKUs, and other descriptive keywords. If a specific arrangement has digital or learning track options, those can be seen by clicking into the product. After clicking into the arrangement for which you are interested, the first product listed will always be the printed sheet music, followed by all available additional options (Digital Download, Digital Learning Tracks, and CD Learning Tracks).

If you aren't sure what song you may want, you can use our Sheet Music filters to help narrow down your search. These filters are available at the top of each sheet music page. After navigating to the Sheet Music portion of the shop site, you can use the products filters listed across the top of the section to filter by Ensemble, Digital Version and Learning track availability, Tempo, and more! You may also use our Search By Arranger page under our All Sheet Music section on our site.

Digital Downloads

We offer sheet music in two formats: digital distribution (where applicable) and printed physical copies. If a product is the digital download version, it will have the letters DL behind the product ID and the word Download in the title. 

There is a minimum purchase quantity of four copies for digital sheet music. This is due to higher copyright costs the Society must pay on digital sheet music. 

If your order contained downloaded products only, then you will receive an email with the digital files immediately after completing your order. If your order contains both physical and downloadable products, you will receive an email with the digital files when your order ships from our warehouse. If you created a customer account, all purchased files will be available under your account’s dashboard as well as being sent to your email.

Music Returns

Harmony Marketplace cannot accept returns or exchanges for sheet music or songbooks (print or digital), or learning tracks (CD or digital) as we are legally obligated to pay royalties and arranger fees on all sold goods and are unable to resell music.

Licensing/Copyright

BHS and Harmony Marketplace are fully licensed by ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and all other applicable copyright holders for web-broadcasting of audio and video samples of our products.

International Sales

Unfortunately, not all of our sheet music is available for sale worldwide. Licensing restrictions with copyright holders guide what and where we can sell products. BHS takes seriously its obligations to comply with copyright law. We are working diligently to increase the number of titles available for sale worldwide via Hal Leonard -- visit bit.ly/mensbarbershop for many new publications. If you are unable to find an arrangement on our website, contact library@barbershop.org for assistance in securing licenses for titles you wish to obtain. 

International Buyers: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to making your purchase.
