Now in its 10th year online, American Music is one of the largest informational sites devoted to help preserve American music with resources and recordings.

This site is owned and operated by PineTree Productions, an educational service devoted to help preserve American music from the past. There are three divisions of this service: PineTree Press, PineTree Music, PineTree Multimedia

Because of the vast amount of American music produced, only a sampling can be covered here.

For those interested in information about music from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, you can join
the Society for Earlier American Music (or SEAM) -- click here

There are many musical treasures waiting to be discvered from America's past and in need of preservation.

There is a need to share this music with a wider public and that is the reason for this website.

You can help in the preservation efforts on this site by purchasing any publications (music collections, CDs, DVDs) listed on this site, or by writing with an offer for financial support or any other help you can provide in this worthwhile preservation effort.
