Music Retail - Resale - Dealers

Notice to our Music Re-Sale Customers from ACA

March 15, 2017

Thank you for your business as ACA has been working to improve the process of getting score reprints out to you, from the more than twelve thousand titles belonging to the ACA music publishing catalog. The catalog contains music scores and parts by American composers dating from the early 1900s to the present day.

Please note some guidelines below that will help us to process your orders better and faster.


Please send all purchase orders and price inquiries by EMAIL or EMAIL ATTACHMENT to:  sales  at  composers  dot  com

We no longer use a fax machine at ACA.

 For purchase orders from approved re-sellers (Re-sale license number must be included), we can offer the following re-sale discounts from the posted list prices on our website.

15-30% off list price for scores and parts in our print-on-demand catalog.  We assume payment by check drawn on a US Bank. Payment by credit card or online services may incur an additional fee to cover our merchant services fees (up to 3%).

A multiple score discount may not be available for orders that are also receiving a resale discount.

New works on a perusal basis may be single copy orders.

10% - 15% is the usual discount for smaller orders, students, ensembles who have a performance planned, and *for opera or symphonic scores of more than 200 total pages, and oversize scores larger than 11 x 17 format. These oversize or longer items, not available at the usual resale discount are marked with an asterisk * on our price listings on this site 

For multiple choral music scores, or a license to print from PDF, please contact us – these are handled on a case by case basis. For single copies of choral scores, no discount can be offered.

We use UPS Ground Service or Media Mail for most carton shipments over 5 lbs and US Priority Mail or First Class Mail for packages under 3 lbs. 
If we use your Shipper account number for 3rd party billing, a minimum handling fee may apply to the order.

Thank you for your business and support,
