The Wilson Music Library subscribes to a number of music journals, including those published by the major professional organizations for various instruments. Reading journals in your area of study is part of being a professional musician - you can learn more about major performers and repertoire, new works, festivals, scholarships, and more. Some of these journals are issued only in print; current issues can be found on the browsing periodicals shelving near the book stacks.  Older issues are located at the Annex, the Vanderbilt Library's off-site shelving location, but they can be delivered by clicking on the "Annex request" button.The links below will take you to each journal's record in the Library Catalog. If you ever have any problems with accessing a journal title, ask for help at the Service Desk.
