  Hello! My name is Ross Salomon and Pre-Press Music Australia is a business name I came up with a few years ago now, when I was mainly interested in the editing and pre-press activities of publishing music, hence the name. I became involved with Willow Publishing in Sydney and supplied music typesetting for a few of their titles including a revision of Mass Shalom  and Christ, Our Way, the final collection of sacred songs by Brother D. Colin Smith cfc, published before his passing in 2005.

  Another exciting project for me to work on was a music theory textbook for high school students by Gaynor Grant called, Music Explained: Music theory tools for secondary school students, published in 2005 by McGraw-Hill Australia in Sydney. I typeset all of the musical examples and illustrations for that publication.

  Another significant work that I have published is Mass 'Jubilate Deo' by Mary Mosses. This mass setting was written for the recently revised Roman Missal (2010).

  My mission is to publish, promote and distribute music scores that will be useful to a broad range of musicians, especially church musicians. Most of my music typesetting and publishing activities have involved church music, whether it be for congregational singing, choirs, piano, organ, or other instruments, such as hand bells or band instruments. I am keen to publish and promote good quality settings and arrangements. If you know of any original, unpublished compositions and arrangements that would suit and enhance Christian worship and the music of the church generally, then I would be interested in hearing from the composer/copyright holder.

  I provide music typesetting and layout services and can arrange printing for people who are interested in publishing their own music themselves, but lack sufficient confidence, technical skills or equipment. I can also provide computer generated sound files for all scores that I typeset.

  I am also happy to consider submissions for publication, promotion and sale via my website. Acceptance, terms and conditions and publishing contracts will be negotiated on an individual basis and will be dependant upon the individual merit of each submission and whether it is suitable for my niche market.
