Mel Bay


Mel Bay Publications began in 1947 when Mel Bay, after being turned down by major music publishers, started his own company to create a series of instructional books for guitar. These books, designed to cater to the rising number of guitar players post-World War II, have since expanded into a wide range of genres and instruments, including banjo, mandolin, and violin. Known for the iconic "Modern Guitar Method," Mel Bay’s offerings have become fundamental resources for music education.
