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."

Other important developments at Musicnotes in 2010:

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