About HELBLING Music

Ever since it was founded in Innsbruck/Austria in 1946, the declared aim of HELBLING Publishing was and still is to develop innovative and high-quality materials for music in the classroom as well as for amateurs. Thus, the first songbooks for singing in schools were written early on. From these early beginnings HELBLING Music single-mindedly developed an extensive school book program for music in the German-speaking area and has grown to be one of the leading providers in this domain. In this way, the publishing company has contributed significantly to the musical education of many generations of pupils for over 70 years.

Music instruction is a key element in the positive development of every person. As a logical consequence of singing with children in school, choral music has increasingly developed in the publishing house. In addition to traditional choral music, a broad range of different genres for all types of choirs - from school and youth choirs to amateur choirs to chamber and concert choirs - was created in collaboration with well-known composers and arrangers. Sacred and secular choral music from past centuries find their place in the publishing program as do contemporary compositions and current pop choir arrangements. The publishing company can serve its customers worldwide with individual editions, choir collections and choir books as well as professional literature on voice training and choral conducting.

In the sizable field of wind music HELBLING Music has always been able to offer appealing and contemporary literature and many works are part of the standard repertoire of numerous wind ensembles today. Instrumental music at HELBLING Music is increasingly devoted to the great demand for instrumental schools for piano and guitar and offers performance and concert literature for these as well as for other instruments and ensemble settings. Making music in school as well as learning outside of school are supported by high-quality productions from qualified experts in their field.
