London, UK, 14 June 2021
Leading music publisher Hal Leonard Europe (HLE) has announced a global agreement to distribute Warwick Music Publishing, the sheet music division of Warwick Music Group, effective 14st June 2021.
Prior to developing the successful line of musical instruments in 2010, including the best-selling pBone and pTrumpet, Warwick Music started as a specialist brass and wind publisher in 1994 with a single piece by eminent British composer and trombonist, Gustav Holst. Their catalogue has since grown to include over 1,000 titles covering a variety of genres, styles and abilities and representing composers from across the globe, selling more than 200,000 pieces.
Warwick’s education titles are enjoyed by students and teachers and feature extensively on examination board syllabi. The catalogue features a number of talented British composers including Mark Nightingale, John Kenny and Kay Charlton.
“We are delighted to find such an outstanding partner in Hal Leonard whose extensive dealer network and distribution expertise will ensure a new international market for our carefully curated print catalogue. As we build on the synergies between our instrument and publishing businesses, it was important to work with a partner who shares our purpose and mission to make music accessible, sustainable and fun!”Steven Greenall, CEO of Warwick Music Group
“HLE is thrilled to represent Warwick Music in print, which further bolsters HLE’s position as the leading distributor of music education resources. This vibrant catalogue has become hugely significant among music teachers, with Warwick’s roster of composers populating the major exam board brass syllabuses. We are very much looking forward to working with Steven and the Warwick team to find new audiences and grow sales – Warwick’s whole ethos aligns with HLE’s vision of lifelong music-making for everyone, and so this is a perfect partnership.”Tom Farncombe, Business Development Director, Hal Leonard Europe
Music dealers can add Warwick Music print titles to their standard order from Hal Leonard Europe from 14 June 2021. Warwick Music will continue to service its digital-only catalogue through its website warwickmusic.com.
