Seeking String Music for Publication

Pizzicato Publishing is a specialty music publisher seeking submissions for its debut catalogue of string orchestra and string solo/ensemble music.

Submission Guidelines
Submissions must be in Finale (.mus) format.
Submissions should be neatly edited. You may include or omit bowings.

Your piece may be edited to fit the educational market and to conform to Pizzicato Publishing formatting standards. Please do not submit a piece if you are not willing to accept some edits.
Parts should be evenly “graded”. That is: an extremely difficult cello part with a relatively easy violin part will not be considered.
You must own the copyright to the piece or it must be an arrangement of a public domain work. We will not seek permission to arrange, etc.
Submissions which are atonal or non-harmonic will not be considered.
