- How do I purchase music without a credit card or paypal account?
- The easiest method is to go through the motions of paying with PayPal,
but stopping before you enter any account information. Then, print up that
page and send it along with check or money order to 1809 NW Columbia Summit Dr, Camas,
WA 98607. The page should total up all items in your cart as well as
shipping charges. Please make the check payable to WARD BAXTER and

- How is the order shipped? How long does it take?
- Most music is shipped via USPS Priority Mail with delivery
confirmation. Within the US, it usually takes 2-3 days for delivery. For
some large orders, Media Mail is used to keep costs down. For international
shipping, USPS First Class postage is used. Generally, this arrives in
about a week from the shipping date.
- Do you offer e-mail or internet delivery of music? (PDF, Tiff, JPG,
- Due to the ease of internet piracy, we do not generally offer
digital delivery of music. Yes, hard copies of music may be photocopied
and distributed illegally...but the threat is much more easily realized

- Do you use Finale, and if so...do you offer Finale files of your
- The primary notation program we use is Finale® by MakeMusic,
however, we use a good deal of custom fonts to get the appearance to be
just right. Several of these fonts are available for purchase from commercial
font designers, but several are designed by Baxter Music Publishing and
are not distributed. For this reason, in combination with piracy-protection
(see other FAQs) we do NOT offer Finale files of our work.
- What is a Version Number and why do you use them?
- Periodically, the publisher will proofread all parts for cosmetic
errors or the composer will re-orchestrate and release an updated version
of the music. Much like software updates and revisions, version numbers
help keep track of the most current release. The version number may be
found in the lower left hand corner of the first page of parts and scores.
