Middle C Music - Middle C Associates Pty Ltd




Welcome to the Middle C website. During 2019 and 2020 we will be continuing with our website development. Sample pages from the actual scores are gradually being introduced so that customers can get a better idea about each piece. New compositions and arrangements are continually being added to our catalogue.


We recently have re-structured our publishing business.  This resulted in a slight name change and we are now Middle C Music.  We believe this makes us sound more like a music publisher and less like a legal firm.


One significant benefit of this change is that we are no longer registered for G.S.T. (Goods and Services Tax).  This means that we are no longer required to add on an extra ten percent to the price of your music.  Most of our Australian customers will probably find that our current prices are the lowest they have been for five years.


We love receiving comments from teachers and conductors who have used our music. We see these testimonials as a win-win situation. Website visitors can learn that our publications have been used successfully by actual schools and community ensembles. This may help convince potential customers that our publications would also work well with their own musicians. Of equal importance, our current customers can enjoy a bit of free publicity. This might be an excellent way of letting the world know about your school or community ensemble. To add your comments, please click on the Testimonials tab on the home page and follow the instructions.


Our team of Middle C composers now numbers two dozen. Twenty-one of them are Aussies (although one of them is again teaching in Malaysia) whilst the remaining three are Kiwis.


Middle C compositions and arrangements have long been known for their wonderful educational content. Perhaps this is due to the fact that every one of our composers and arrangers is a current or former music educator.


Our presence has come to be expected at various Australian and international music conferences. During 2019 this included the annual VCE Music Conference in Melbourne, the TASME Music Conference in Hobart, the Maryborough Music Conference in Queensland, the Kern County Music Educators Conference in California USA, the ASME National Conference in Perth and the F - 10 Music Conference in Melbourne (run by the Association of Music Educators).


Sometimes ensemble directors prefer to play through the pieces rather than just look at the scores. Over the years, this has been a fun and rewarding way of familiarising conductors, teachers and musicians with our repertoire. Two such events may take place in term four - one in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales and the other in Kingaroy, Queensland. Plannning is still in the early stages for both reading sessions.


We were all saddened to hear of the passing of Derek. He was a talented teacher, a fine musician, a knowledgeable conductor, a respected adjudicator, a superb arranger and a wonderful human being. Long regarded as one of Australia's finest wind band arrangers, Derek was particularly skilled at producing exquisite transcriptions of well known orchestral works. We are fortunate to have several of his well crafted creations in our concert band catalogue. These works will live on as a testament to this great man.


We hope to include a photo or two in future newsletters. If you have performed a Middle C composition in the past twelve months and have a photo to prove it, please send it to us and we will see what we can do. We will gratefully acknowledge your contribution.
