Music notation is an art. The appearance and legibility of a piece of music has the potential to positively affect players, reduce rehearsal times, and alleviate questions regarding the composer's intent. Conversely, music that is ill prepared can have an equally detremental effect.

Baxter Music Publishing takes great interest in the way that music appears. Simply following the rules of manuscript is not enough to achieve success for one's music. Extra steps must be taken to ensure that the intent of the composer is met. At Baxter Music Publishing, each piece is carefully scrutinized from from the the viewpoints of the conductor, the performer, and the composer to ensure maximum legibility and content.
