History

Alfred Music Publishing was founded in New York, in 1922, by composer and musician Alfred Piantodosi. His modest Tin Pan Alley pop song catalog included such hits as Waiting for the Robert E. Lee and Ragtime Cowboy Joesongs that still generate revenue for the company today.

In 1928, the company was bought by Sam Manus, a violinist who provided background music for silent films. Sams son, Morty, and Mortys wife, Iris, began working for the company during the 1950s. Inspired by the need for quality music education products, Morty, a clarinetist and pianist, oversaw the development of an instructional series for accordion, followed by books for guitar, piano, and recorder.

Alfred developed significantly over the next decade and eventually outgrew its New York headquarters. In 1975, the main office was relocated to Los Angeles, and the distribution center was moved to upstate New York. Sharing their fathers vision, Mortys sons Steven and Ron joined the company in the 1980s. While continuing to develop the worlds leading instructional methods and performance music, they also expanded Alfred into the international market by establishing branches in Australia, Germany, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

In 2005, Alfred purchased Warner Bros. Publications, acquiring the rights to Warner/Chappell Music, Inc. and the EMI Catalogue Partnership. Through this deal, Alfred gained the print rights of legendary publishers such as M. Witmark & Sons, Remick Music Corp., and T.B. Harms, Inc. Among the EMI holdings are the Robbins and Leo Feist catalogs, plus film music from United Artists, MGM, and 20th Century Fox.

As of 2010, Alfreds catalog includes over 90,000 currently active titles representing a wide range of well-known publicationsfrom methods such as Alfreds Basic Guitar, Alfreds Basic Piano Library, Premier Piano Course, Sound Innovations, and Suzuki, to artists like Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Van Halen, Green Day, Michael Jackson, Sheryl Crow, Eagles, Cole Porter, and George & Ira Gershwin, and brand names such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Rolling Stone, and Billboard.

Now in its third generation of Manus family leadership, Alfred is led by CEO Ron Manus and backed by a talented management team in seven offices worldwide. Under Rons leadership, Alfred has continued to expand, acquiring rights to ABKCO, S-1, Warner Bros. Studios, and establishing distribution deals with TASCAM, Mighty Bright, Ultimate Support, and others. Alongside this growth, Rons forward-thinking has lead to the recent announcement of the first-ever customizable instrumental methods Sound Innovations for Concert Band and Sound Innovations for String Orchestra, and his passion for protecting the environment has driven the company to begin printing books on 100% recycled paper.
