About Us

Who Are We?

The Victorian Music Library (VML) is a not-for-profit music resource centre, managed entirely by volunteers, to preserve and provide for loan a collection of over 15,500 items of catalogued sheet music.

After the New York Public Library, we are the holders of the largest collection of sheet music available to the general public (via membership).

We aim to make the music collection available to our members who include orchestras, string ensembles, brass bands, school music departments, musicians, performers, students and music teachers.

Membership is available at a reasonable rate and allows loans from our collection along with other benefits. We also welcome supporters of the library and gratefully accept all donations which can be made tax deductible.

Our collection currently includes:
• Piano music solos – used by both performers and teachers
• Orchestral music -- often used for school performances
• String orchestra music – used by school and community groups
• Band music – suitable for new bands and community groups
• Percussion music – a large collection rarely available elsewhere
• Solo instrumental music – including pieces for AMEB and VCE exams
• Choral and vocal music – both secular and religious
• Chamber music – often used in schools or by professionals searching for out of print material
