In a major strategic move, Hal Leonard Corporation has acquired 100% ownership of Boston-based Noteflight, LLC, a fast-growing online community of nearly a million music makers.

Founded in 2008, Noteflight operates a website where musicians, composers, songwriters, arrangers, teachers and students can create, edit and share music scores in the cloud, instantly and easily. The website also gives musicians the opportunity to collaborate and comment on each other’s music, while sharing musical opinions and other information through user forums.

With support and guidance from Hal Leonard, the existing Noteflight team will continue working together and will remain headquartered in Boston. Noteflight will operate as an independent company, within Hal Leonard’s overall global operations. The company has aggressive expansion and growth plans for the immediate future.

According to Hal Leonard President Larry Morton, “The marriage of Hal Leonard and Noteflight is a perfect fit. The Noteflight online community and platform are very important to our future plans, and we are excited about the possibilities of working together to make online music scores more accessible and more widely used.”

Noteflight President Joe Berkovitz adds, “Noteflight was founded on the idea of using the web to help musicians create music wherever, whenever and however they like. We feel very positive about the shared vision between Noteflight and Hal Leonard, and about the myriad possibilities for blending technology and content. There are tremendous opportunities in the market, and we are poised to capture them together.”
