I need a composer's biography. How do I get them?

How quickly will my music arrive?
E-Edition links to your PDF files are automatically sent as soon as your payment has been processed. This usually takes up to a minute. If your link and code do not arrive then please contact us at downloads@saxtetpublications.com. Guidance on hard copy purchase delivery times can be found on the June Emerson website.

I've ordered your music from my local store and it still hasn't arrived - what's going on?!
Firstly, check that your store has actually placed the order. Certain traders may only order on one specific day of the week, so if you went in on Saturday, and they only order on Friday, you could be waiting 6 days before your store orders the title, and then the title may not be in till the Monday. The quickest way to receive hard copy music is to order directly from June Emerson Wind Music.

I have lost a part to a score that I purchased from you. Can I buy spare parts?

How do your 'difficulty' levels work?
Our difficulty levels correspond to ABRSM grades, approximately: A = 1/2, B = 3/4, C = 5/6, D = 7/8, E = 8+. We would always recommend you view the sample PDF score as this may give you a better idea as to whether the music is suitable for you or your group!
