November sales for Musicnotes.com will reach $1 million, 25% over sales last November and the first $1 million month for the seller of digital sheet music, Tim Reiland, chairman and CFO, tells Internet Retailer. Reiland says the company expects 2009 sales to approach $11 million, nearly $2 million more than 2008.

Musicians at Musicnotes.com, No. 500 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, are downloading 200,000 pieces of sheet music a month, Reiland reports (a PDF version of the company’s financial and operating profile from the Top 500 can be ordered by clicking on its name). The company has now sold more than 6 million downloads to roughly 2 million customers since it launched 10 years ago.

International business now accounts for more than 20% of sales and is growing at a faster rate than overall business, the company says.

“What we find most interesting is that we are seeing this level of growth without any new hit songs,” says Bill Aicher, web and marketing director. “Less than 4% of our sales are coming from our top 10 downloads. This growth is really coming from across the entire spectrum of our catalog.”
