A note on sheet music (no pun intended):  although it's easy to photocopy music or even print it from IMSLP, I recommend buying the actual music whenever possible and only copying or downloading it so that you can start working on it while your music is being ordered and shipped.  The music we love will go out of print if no one buys it, and it's the right thing to do to pay for it.  In addition, I recommend buying from actual double reed stores whenever possible.  These are actual "mom and pop" organizations run by real people who are knowledgeable and can answer your questions should you have any.  So unless amazon or sheetmusicplus is considerably less expensive, please try to buy from these actual people.
