Help Swirly Music Succeed as a Service for Composers and Performers
Swirly Music’s mission is to provide the underserved community of self-publishing “classical” composers with a user-friendly place on the web to make their music available in print to performers who are seeking new, interesting repertoire. We do not make editorial decisions based upon aesthetic values, style or perceived profitability. Any participating composer’s music is welcome here, even if it never sells a single copy, as long as reasonable professional standards are met.
Swirly Music is more about facilitating new discoveries and performance opportunities for composers than simply selling products. Since the kind of repertoire we carry is not a mass-market consumer commodity, the buying audience is limited and it may not be possible to sustain a high-quality service on the revenue from sales alone.
Revenue from sales and nominal fees paid by composers offset the expenses of providing basic services to an extent, but with ongoing support from individuals and funding organizations, Swirly Music will be able to cover its expenses and pursue a variety of opportunities to help composers promote their music here.Your donation will help make Swirly Music a better service.
