We offer original piano pieces written by various composers and also piano arrangements not only of classical piano pieces but also music of symphony, opera, and ballet, ragtime, and old folk songs. Such songs are The Nutcracker, Carmen, The Planets, Moonlight Sonata, Liebesträume, and Greensleeves. Customers also get to hear the high quality full length sample audio recording of each piece for free. The main behind-the-scene personnel is a music arranger and editor, Mizue Murakami. She was inspired to write solo piano arrangement of orchestral suite, The Planets, composed by Gustav Holst. That's how this online sheet music store has started. Galaxy Music Notes is a small company located in Seattle metropolitan area in Washington, USA. Besides Mizue Murakami, currently we have a software technician; Ken, marketing specialist; Robert, graphic designer; Daniel, and assistant; Gboungué. Since we do produce each sheet music one by one, we only have dozens of songs in our store right now. But we are working hard to upload new sheet music weekly. So, please visit our website frequently or sign up with your email address so that we can notify you each time we produce new sheet music. If you have a request for specific songs/pieces please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope piano players of all levels out there in the world (including aliens out in the GALAXY....just kidding :-) not only enjoy playing these pieces but also take advantage of them to improve their piano skills and shine like stars.*
