MADISON, WI – January 18, 2011 – Musicnotes.com, the leading digital sheet music retailer and publisher, announced today sales of digital sheet music at its online store grew 25% in 2010, accelerating from the 21% growth recorded in 2009 and exceeding $10 million in yearly sales for the first time.

"Musicnotes added great content in 2010 – both new song releases as well as back catalog – and made marked improvements to the customer shopping experience, resulting in a solid increase in our conversion rate," stated Musicnotes Chairman, Tim Reiland. "We are expecting further conversion gains in 2011 as we introduce significant site enhancements currently in development."

- Royalties paid to publishers and songwriters exceeded $4 million for the year.
