String sheet music can be found many places for many purposes; as a player or teacher, you should be looking for the best place to meet your needs. That may turn out to be the Internet, where a great variety of sheet music is available for soloists, ensembles, and full orchestra. If there is a specific piece you want, you should certainly try looking for it online; but if you are browsing in any capacity as a teacher, player, or student, that may be when you are most pleasantly surprised by online musical catalogs.

Quartets looking for new string sheet music can find glorious quartets by Schubert, Mozart, Beethoven, and many of the composers who favored the genre. In some cases, there are simplified arrangements, so that teachers of relative beginners can pair up students so they begin to learn the crucial skill of ensemble playing as they develop all of their other skills. Other times, you can find masterpieces such as the Schubert Cello Quintet in C Major in their full glory.

Conductors, especially for youth orchestras, are often on the lookout for new music. While classical music may be an essential part of any program, it is by no means the only option available in searching for string sheet music. Students performing in school orchestras often find popular music, such as movie soundtrack scores, not only familiar but also fun to play.

Furthermore, if you are just playing for fun or coaching students who want to have a good time with music that doesn't require hours of devoted practice, you can find a variety of sheet music online that you might not be able to find anywhere else. Arrangements of popular songs, classics, holiday songs, and songs written or arranged by musicians who aren't famous composers but just wanted to get their work out there are all possibly pieces your students will enjoy playing. Not to mention, if you've been teaching for many years, you could be grateful for some variety in the repertoire of pieces you have to listen to many times a day, every day!
