Alfred Publications


Alfred Music, founded in 1922 in Tin Pan Alley as Manus Music, evolved into a prominent music education publisher under the leadership of Sam Manus and later his son Morty. Initially publishing popular sheet music, the company expanded its focus in the 1950s to include educational materials for various instruments, becoming a pioneer in music education. With a repertoire that boasts over 150,000 active titles, Alfred Music represents iconic brands and a diverse array of artists, from classical composers to contemporary stars, and is known for methods like Alfred’s Basic Piano Library and Sound Innovations. The acquisition of Warner Bros. Publications in 2005 enriched their catalog with legendary film music and classic songbooks. Today, as part of Peaksware Holdings, Alfred Music merges tradition with technology, shaping the future of how music is composed, taught, and performed.
