Alberta Keys Music Publishers


37 Hollyburn Rd SW Calgary Ab T2V3H2

Alberta Keys began in 1980 as a project for the Alberta 75th Birthday Commission. A book of 47 piano pieces by 17 Alberta composers was the result. The company name comes from the title of this book, Alberta Keys. We incorporated as a company in 1983 and published three piano books, Rainbows, Freckles, and Charms, the following year. In 1985 Alberta Keys published a book of songs, Whims, by Western Canadian composers. From 1985 to 1990, Alberta Keys published two or three titles each year. In the years 1990 to 2000 the company was more active with 7 or 8 books and pieces of sheet music coming out each year. Our composers now come from all parts of Canada. In addition to works for young pianists and singers, we publish song cycles and piano solos for concert artists. In 1995 the company started to publish violin and piano collections and solos and ensemble music for other string players.
