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

Because of the vast amount of American music produced, only a sampling can be covered here. There is much emphasis on more recent music in mass media today, especially from the 1960s onward. This site seeks to focus on before the 1960s, back to the 1860s, and even the 1760s!

There are many musical treasures waiting to be discovered.

You can help in the preservation efforts 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.

If you are planning a concert with American music, a recording, a music course, or other program and would like professional advice, write for consultation fee to music preservationist, Roger Lee Hall.
