Hal Leonard Acquires Sheet Music Plus
Hal Leonard has announced that it has acquired Sheet Music Plus, an e-commerce website for music publications.
Sheet Music Plus will continue to operate as an independent business led by CEO Jenny Silva and her existing team in its Emeryville, California, office. Founded in 1997, Sheet Music Plus currently sells music from hundreds of publishers throughout the world in both paper form and digital formats.
Hal Leonard will use its new relationship to develop the ability for consumers to order from the SMP website and pick up their products at their local music store. In addition, it will also launch a Retailer Partner Program that will feature the ability for retailers to order products using SMP's online platform.
"This next chapter will bring many advantages for our customers," Silva said. "We have worked closely together with Hal Leonard for years, and I know that their team has a deep appreciation for the great service that Sheet Music Plus provides to musicians. We look forward to sharing our strengths to provide even more services to the greater music community as well."
