With digital orders you will be able to download the materials immediately after purchase. If the piece involves video, a DVD will be mailed to you. The ZIP files contain high-resolution PDF/AIFF files and can be quite large. Some very large digital archives only ship on a hard drive. Most pieces are also available as physical bound scores with CD/DVD and shipping costs included in the purchase price.

To arrange rental of performance parts for the larger instrumental pieces, please write to

In order to perform Matthew Burtner’s music in public the score must be purchased from an authorized publisher (including on this website).
