NYC’s Last Classical Sheet Music Store to Close

Citing Dwindling Sales, Frank Music Company Will Shut Down

Frank Music Company has supplied classical sheet music to generations of instrumentalists, singers and composers.

On Friday, the retail store will close its doors for good, succumbing to dwindling sales.

Frank Music has been struggling for years, as music became readily available online, said Heidi Rogers, the shop’s owner.

“We went from seeing 15 to 20 people per day to seeing two or three,” Ms. Rogers said on Monday. “I went from feeling like I was at the center of the world to feeling invisible.”

The store, on West 54th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, opened in 1937 and provided the city’s musicians scores from the standard—Bach, Beethoven—to the arcane. Ms. Rogers bought it in 1978.
