Chamberlin's Music Available on SheetMusicPlus

July 15, 2019

Bob Chamberlin, emeritus professor of music, has listed many of his musical works on SheetMusicPlus, an internet-based retail outlet. "My motivation to do this...I've never been much of a promoter of my own music and never actively pursued publication whole-heartedly, being content to be self-published and sell copies if someone expressed interest. When I noticed other friends/composers promoting their scores via Facebook, I thought I should give it a try.”
