Publications from Trinity College London, a leading international performing arts examination board, will now be distributed by Music Distribution Services (MDS), a worldwide music distributor based in Mainz, Germany.
Shops will now be able to order all of their Trinity publications from MDS directly while retailers will now be able to bundle orders of Trinity publications with other publishers’ books — for example, publications from Schott Music, Universal Edition, Peters Edition and Boosey & Hawkes — as MDS carries the largest range of titles of any distributor in Europe.
"Trinity is growing, and our collaboration with MDS gives us the opportunity to increase the worldwide coverage of our publications and exams," said Sarah Kemp, chief executive of Trinity College London. "The new relationship also means that it will be easier and more cost-effective for retailers to stock our titles. Our students will benefit immensely from being able to buy all the music they need for their Trinity exam from just one place."
Music teachers and students can now buy all Trinity music books, including the Rock & Pop range, from their local retailer or from a new Trinity online shop run by Boosey & Hawkes.
Rock & Pop downloads will continue to be sold through the Faber Music online shop on the Trinity Rock website.
