The Tale of Educational Music Service
Bob Walls was a free spirit and very smart guy. He had excelled at selling books for Doubleday, selling music for Hansen House, Shawnee Press and Frank Richards Music. On the side, just for fun, he was a church music director. Being a rebel and lover of classical music he decided to start his own company in 1979 selling sheet music to high schools, but soon branched out to orchestras, opera companies, choral societies, colleges and churches.
After 43 years we’re still doing it fast, cheap and correct, not necessarily in that order. Or if you prefer – quickly, cheaply and correctly.
Educational Music Service ("EMS") is the leading supplier of purchasable, printed music to symphony orchestras, opera companies, colleges & universities, choral groups, libraries, churches and schools in North American and Asia.
