Sheet Music - History
In the 19th century, the music industry was dominated by sheet music publishers. In New York City, the group of publishers and composers who dominated the industry were referred to as 'Tin Pan Alley'. The name was given to a specific area in Manhattan where many of them set up in business. Nowadays, the term 'Tin Pan Alley' is given to any area in a main city or town where there are several musical instrument stores or musical publishers in close proximity to each other.  In the 1920's the radio became popular and as a result sheet music became less important. In 1984 a computer notation program called 'Music Construction Set' made it possible for people to construct their own sheet music using their home personal computer. Notes and symbols could be added to the music stave and played on the pc or printed off and performed at a later stage. Today, there are many other computer software programs where sheet music can be created quickly and relatively easily and it is the most popular method of creating sheet music.

Sheet Music - Bible References
Music was mentioned many times in the bible, the following definition of music is taken from Easton Bible Dictionary.

  • Jubal was the inventor of musical instruments (Gen. 4:21). The Hebrews were much given to the cultivation of music. Their whole history and literature afford abundant evidence of this. After the Deluge, the first mention of music is in the account of Laban's interview with Jacob (Gen. 31:27). After their triumphal passage of the Red Sea, Moses and the children of Israel sang their song of deliverance (Ex. 15)

  • The period of Samuel, David, and Solomon was the golden age of Hebrew music, as it was of Hebrew poetry. Music was now for the first time systematically cultivated. It was an essential part of training in the schools of the prophets (1 Sam. 10:5; 19:19-24; 2 Kings 3:15; 1 Chr. 25:6). There now arose also a class of professional singers (2 Sam. 19:35; Eccl. 2:8). The temple, however, was the great school of music. In the conducting of its services large bands of trained singers and players on instruments were constantly employed (2 Sam. 6:5; 1 Chr. 15; 16; 23;5; 25:1-6)
