Thank you for your interest in submitting works to our company for consideration for publication. E. C. Schirmer Music and Galaxy Music are primarily publishers of classical choral music. We currently consider for publication new music written for unaccompanied or accompanied chorus, songs (vocal music), operas, orchestra, string orchestra, and pedagogical books for stringed instruments. We also publish new songs for solo voice, chamber works, and works for solo instruments, but the market is limited market for these genres.

To submit works to our company for consideration for publication, please send a résumé and a list of your most representative musical compositions. You should send us scores for a few of your best compositions from among the genres cited above, not just a recording of them. If we wish to see more works we will let you know. Choral works may be sacred or secular. Please let us know up-front whether the words and/or melodies contained within submitted works are in the Public Domain (“P.D.”) or copyrighted. If any of them are copyrighted, please provide written proof from the copyright holder(s) that you have permission to set them to music. In the event that any of your works are accepted for publication, we would have to arrive at terms with the copyright holder(s) before moving ahead with a music publishing agreement. Please cite all text and/or tune sources for all submitted works whether P.D. or not. Recordings of submitted works are helpful but not required. We do consider e-mailed submissions. However, kindly follow the submissions guidelines above diligently.

We do not consider for publication titles which are currently under consideration for publication by other publishing houses.

We are holding a very large backlog of works to which we are already committed. While this limits very much what we can accept, we are always interested in seeing new works.

We prefer emailed submissions and those sent via Dropbox, but paper submissions are also acceptable. However, kindly follow the submissions guidelines above diligently. Please mail, ship, or e-mail your submissions to the attention of The Editorial Committee. Our contact information appears below. Paper submissions from outside of USA will not be returned.

Please send us files rather than links, invitations to DropBox, or storage locations which require a sign-on. Send all required materials to the attention of The Editorial Committee at the address below:
