Leading sheet music publisher and distributor Hal Leonard Europe has today announced that with immediate effect, it will begin distributing Kevin Mayhew’s catalogue of instrumental sheet music and music education resources worldwide. The addition of Kevin Mayhew to its distribution ensures Hal Leonard Europe continues to offer solutions that meet the needs of every music teacher, student and musician.
“We chose to expand our offering with Kevin Mayhew as their instrumental tutor books and music education resources are some of the most popular and widely used in the UK and Europe. Having already been a wholesaler and retailer of Kevin Mayhew publications for a number of years, it was a logical choice for us to increase our long-standing relationship with the company. With close to one thousand publications in stock in our distribution centres, customers can begin adding Kevin Mayhew to their orders right away.”
Tom Venvell, Sales Director, Hal Leonard Europe
The extensive Kevin Mayhew music catalogue caters for all standards, from the complete beginner through to the professional. For advanced players, a growing range of Urtext editions is prepared by principal players of world-famous orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and English Chamber Orchestra, by professors at the leading music conservatories, and by experienced music editors. A stable of talented in-house composers, including many current and former cathedral organists, music teachers, classical and jazz musicians, provides a feast of new music for many instruments.
“Moving to work with Hal Leonard is hugely exciting for us. As the publisher of a huge catalogue of market-leading music it is our aim to help as many musicians as we can, from absolute beginner to the advanced player, to improve their musicianship and their love of music. To now be able to increase our reach across the whole of Europe, and to also better support musicians in the UK, is a fantastic move and I have no doubt that this relationship between Hal Leonard and Kevin Mayhew will go from strength to strength.”
David Gatward, Managing Director, Kevin Mayhew
ABOUT KEVIN MAYHEW
Kevin Mayhew Publishers was founded in 1976 and made its name initially as a publisher of hymn books, though the catalogue quickly grew to embrace choral, organ and worship music. In time, a book department was established to provide liturgical resources, material for children’s ministry, theological and devotional books.
Greeting cards, gifts and educational resources are also now offered in addition to a complete catalogue of church supplies that encompasses furniture, clerical wear, candles and much more. The music catalogue embraces all major instruments and the record label produces quality CD recordings of organ, choral and classical music, with many recordings made in our state-of-the-art studio.
