Prescribed Music List (PML)
Current PML Edits
The 2016-2017 PML is now live. Updates this year include all band, choir, and orchestra large ensemble lists, PLUS all Class 1 solo lists and percussion ensembles. The review of all remaining solo and ensemble literature will continue over the next several years.
The PML has been migrated to a new platform that works best in the following browsers: IE10+, Edge, Chrome, Opera, Firefox. IE9 and Safari have some problems with exporting to Excel. Note: The PDF export will fail if you try to export the entire PML (800 pages). Restrict the selection to a smaller subset before exporting. A link to the entire PML will be posted here when it becomes available. Please let us know if you find any problems or issues.
Input Process (For school district music teachers only. Publishers must follow the submission process as outlined here)
To request that the large ensemble (band, choir, orchestra) committees consider the addition of a piece published in the current year please go to the PML Submission Process and follow the instructions.
To request that any piece (large ensemble or S&E) be removed from the PML or changed to a different grade level; OR to request that any piece published prior to the current year be added, please send an email with the following:
- Title and Composer of the Piece
- Performance Medium (for example, full orchestra, bassoon solo, etc)
- Brief Explanation and Justification for Request
All requests will be reviewed and considered by the appropriate PML committees. With the exception of error corrections updates to the PML for the current school year are made in August.
