Where to Find Modern Music

All flutists know that one of the biggest problems is finding good sheet music to play, and while today many classical works can be downloaded for free from the Internet, most modern and contemporary music, which of course is subject to copyright, cannot be found anywhere online. That's why sheet music can make an excellent gift for amateur musicians of all ages and levels.

At flutetunes.com we receive many requests from our visitors asking for free sheet music, and we do everything possible to fulfill these requests. However, since we must honor copyright law, we cannot share transcriptions of modern works.

We have thus decided to make a list of the most popular commercial sheet music for flute, based on all the requests that we have received and that could not be fulfilled.

These pieces can be bought online at very reasonable prices, and will bring joy to the heart of every flute enthusiast!
