Changes to our shipping rates

We asked for your feedback about the store … And we heard you loud and clear - shipping and handling charges are the number one thing you want us to improve!

package for shipping

First, let’s get real about the cost of shipping ... We want to send you awesome stuff – books to improve your technique, expand your repertoire, and inspire you; accessories to show off your dedication to the instrument; and gear to make playing more fun and easy.

But, shipping these products around the world is expensive! Our shipping costs are real – and the amount we collect on shipping and handling from our customers covers about 70% of what we actually pay out for postage.

Despite this, there is good news … We’re making the way we calculate shipping and handling simpler – and sharing the benefits with you! We hope these changes will make shopping with us easier and more affordable.

Here’s how it works:

If your order is being shipped within the United States

You pay for shipping based on the value of your order. For example, when you buy more than one book at once, it’s more efficient for us to ship than when they’re purchased individually - so we’re passing the savings back to you!
