About MyLibrary

MyLibrary is a place that stores supplemental content for Hal Leonard publications. It's a quick and easy way to access audio, video and/or other files that go along with physical books and products. MyLibrary is cloud-based so you can access the files from any computer in any location.

How to Access Content

Page 1 of the book you've purchased contains a 16-digit code. Enter the code in the box above that says "Enter Access Code". Access codes are unique to each printed copy of a book. Content can be accessed whenever you want, and multiple times. Only the unique code is needed; no other registration is required. MyLibrary is compatible with PC, Mac and mobile devices.

When you've successfully submitted your access code, the content page for that book will appear. You'll know you've reached the right page because the cover image and title will match your book. Sections of content will be listed to the right. Simply click or tap the section titles to show the content underneath them; you'll see the files that match the content listed in your book's Table of Contents.

Play, View, & Download

  • Play links will open up an audio or video player window through which you can interact with the content. For audio playback, if your computer has Flash installed, our new Playback+ player will be displayed allowing you to adjust the speed, pitch, balance and set loop points per your preference. Playback+ works best with the following browsers: Chrome, Safari, and IE (version 10 and above).
  • View links will open up a PDF document in another tab or browser window, allowing you to read while accessing other content on the site.
  • Download links will start the download process for the file, allowing you to access them locally. iOS device users will need to sync using a desktop computer or an iCloud account; or, use a third-party app to facilitate a download. See the FAQ below.
  • If your item has a Download All button, you can download a zipfile of all content for one book at a time.

Creating Your Own Library

If you own multiple Hal Leonard publications, you have the option to create your own library and combine files from all titles. It's a convenient way to keep track of all your content in once place. You can sort by song, artist, book title and more. Also, if you plan to retrieve content often you only need to enter codes once, then they're saved for future access. To set up your own library, just click on the Create Library link.

Creating Your Own Audio CDs

You can use mp3s that you download from MyLibrary to create audio CDs using your preferred media player (such as iTunes). Be sure to create an "audio CD," as "mp3 CDs" or "data CDs" will not play in CD players. Note that CDs are limited to 79 minutes of audio.

Q: I own lots of Hal Leonard publications with CDs. Can I now access the media online?

Sorry, but we have no way of supplying codes for previously purchased publications. If your book was purchased before 2014 and/or does not have a MyLibrary code printed in or on the product, the media is not setup for online access.

Q: I'm trying to enter my access code but I'm not seeing the content page. What's wrong?

Check the following to make sure that the access code is being entered properly:

  • Make sure you've entered the access code correctly
  • All access codes are 16 characters long. Make sure you are including all of them in the access code field
  • You can enter your access code with dashes (as they appear in your book) or spaces, but other extra characters won't work

Q: I already have an account on Can I use this on MyLibrary, even though I don't have a username?

Yes! If you are already a user, your email is your username, and your password stays the same.

Q: Sometimes when I try to click Play or Download on the item pages, I get sent back to the main page of the site. Why is this?

If you have been inactive for 30 minutes, our system will close your session to protect your content. Simply reenter your access code and the item page will reappear.

Q: On my iPad and iPhone, the Download links and Download All button just open another browser tab; sometimes they just play the track, but they don't download the file. How come this doesn't really download?

iOS, the operating system on the iPad and iPhone, will not allow you to download any file (zipfiles, audio, video, PDF, etc) directly in iTunes or to other apps. There are several ways to work around this:

  • You can download normally on your desktop computer, saving the files to iTunes. Then, you can sync your iOS device directly to your computer, or sync your iTunes content using an iCloud account.
  • Or, there are many third-party apps which allow you to download many file types, including zipfiles, directly from websites into that app's own file manager for easy retrieval and playback. One of these is the Files app, which allows you to unzip zipfiles and play MP3 audio directly from inside the app.

    Once the Files app is installed (or the app of your choice), go to the My Library page for your book and follow the instructions below (please note that your app of choice may have a different set of steps for completing the same tasks as described below):
    • On your iOS device in Safari, navigate to the book’s page of content (the page that shows the cover image).
    • Find the content you wish to download. This might be the Download All button (for a zipfile), or a Download link for an individual file (zipfile, audio, video, PDF, etc).
    • Tap the download link or button: this will open another browser tab where you should see the name of the file, its size, and the option to "Open in "Files"". If you do not see this immediately, you may need to refresh the browser tab.
    • Tap "Open in "Files"".
    • The Files app should then open and show you the file. If you downloaded a zipfile, you will need to tap "<Files" in the upper right to see this zipfile in the app directory, then tap on the entry to unzip it. Once unzipped, you should see the folders, and files in the folders, for your book.
    • Tapping on any MP3 should play directly from inside the Files app.

Q: Can I use MyLibrary to access supplemental audio and/or video in Hal Leonard eBooks?

No. We only supply audio for print versions purchased. If you download any item from an eBook Publisher, the audio and/or video is embedded in the copy you have downloaded, as long as your device is compatible. Please contact the eBook company directly to learn how to access the audio and/or video that is embedded in the item you purchased.
