Cherry Lane Music has always strived to bring music into the lives of as many people as possible. The head of Cherry Lane, John Stix, probably said it best when he stated that the company mission is to "get sheet music out of the piano bench and onto the piano. By making a pact with our fans, we hope they will come to see our folios as more than just songbooks." With such a wide variety of books already in circulation all over the world, it's safe to say that Cherry Lane Music is well on the way to achieving their goals.
The beauty of Cherry Lane Music books is that they are able to engage learners quickly. This is because their books are filled with music for modern songs that young performers are going to be interested in playing. If you sit a young guitarist down and tell them they have the option of practicing an old standard, or a new hit from their favorite group, nine times out of ten they'll choose the song they're more enthusiastic about, and enthusiasm is a core ingredient to learning and becoming successful at any instrument.
Cherry Lane's books cover a wide assortment of popular artists, so you'll be able to find the music you love in no time. Are you a fan of cool, modern singer songwriters? Then you'll love the Jack Johnson In Between Dreams Guitar Tab Songbook or the John Mayer Anthology: Volume One PVG Songbook. Maybe classic rock and heavy metal are more your scene? Then the Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction Guitar Tab Songbook or the Metallica - Death Magnetic Guitar Tablature Songbook will probably be right up your alley! Of course, if you're more into modern rock, options such as the Coheed and Cambria - Year Of The Black Rainbow Guitar Tab Songbook or the Black Keys El Camino Guitar Tab Songbook will definitely get you strumming in no time.
And that's only scratching the surface! Cherry Lane Music offers hundreds of different books and learning tools for performers of all skill levels. It's never too late to learn something new, and Cherry Lane Music helps to make that process easier and more fun than ever before.
