We are relaunching Musicland Publications today!

Happy New Year!

Caroline and Musicland PublicationsI’m very excited to announce that we are relaunching Musicland Publications today!

Our brand new e-commerce website at www.musiclandpublications.com features some of our best-loved string sheet music and educational resources.

The catalogue includes favourites such as Bread and Butter Pudding, Lollipop Man, the ever-popular Ragtime Serenade and Rumba, and many more!


Our new covers – gradually rolling out across the catalogue!

Some of our older ‘Classics’ – now available again for next day despatch!


The rest of the catalogue will be added to the website over the next few weeks, and we’ve got some exciting plans for the rest of 2017, including:

  • Updated editions of the entire Musicland catalogue
  • New digital sheet music versions
  • New apps and ebooks
  • New tutor books

The whole of the Musicland Publications catalogue will be available again soon through most major sheet music retailers, including in Europe and Australia. We can also ship directly to anywhere in the world from our new ‘cottage warehouse’ in Gloucestershire!

New Management for Musicland Publications

In recent years I have taken a step back from running the business in order to care for my husband (and Musicland co-founder!) Alan, who is, as many of you know, coping with Alzheimers. However, I’ll be remaining closely involved with updating the catalogue and planning our new publications – as well as delivering a limited number of workshops each year.

ViolinSchoolBut I’m thrilled to announce that day-to-day management of Musicland Publications is now passing to my nephew, Simon Hewitt Jones and his team at ViolinSchool in London.

Together we will be creating a plethora of books, video programs and apps for learners of all ages, and developing plans for Musicland to become a state-of-the-art digital publisher for string music and educational resources. Musicland is going to keep me busy for at least another 20 years!

Anita Hewitt JonesI know that Anita Hewitt Jones (my mother, whose popular chamber music compositions make up the bulk of the early Musicland catalogue) would be delighted that Simon is at the helm, and that the family business is passing to the ‘third generation’!

Anita was a deeply passionate advocate of music education, and we’ll be holding close to her values and legacy as we move Musicland forward into the digital age!

We’d love to let you know about all our new music and publications as they are released, via our new monthly newsletter. (You can unsubscribe at any time using the link at the bottom of each email).

And please do forward this to any friends/pupils who might enjoy the music that we publish. We want the next generation of young string players to discover the joy and excitement of playing music together!

With all good wishes for your music-making in 2017 and beyond!

– Caroline
