The Guitar Chamber Music Press staff takes pride in the quality of its products. Our music is printed on 8.5” x 11”, 28-pound paper and the covers are on 100-pound silk. Most scores are spiral bound; however, shorter works are saddle (staple) stitched. For ensemble works, multiple-page parts are on 11” x 17” paper and saddle (staple) stitched when longer than 4 pages. Layout is standardized with .5-inch boarders and well-spaced systems for ease of reading. In addition, blank pages are used as needed to facilitate page turns. Initially, GCMP used a white satin finish cover with the company logo, title, category and composer/arranger but recently has incorporated a more colorful cover. We use public domain works of art and photographs or artwork provided by the composer or arranger. Most scores include performance notes, a biography page and a table of contents when appropriate. Many of our composers and arrangers are academics and professors and have a profound understanding of the guitar and its music.
Unlike larger publishing companies, copyrights and mechanical rights remain with the composer or arranger. Guitar Chamber Music Press is strictly a publisher and distributor.
