Sheet Music Plus Wins Stevie® Award in 5th Annual American Business Awards

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - Sheet Music Plus won a Stevie Award for Best E-commerce Site in the 2007 American Business Awards last week.

Hailed as "the business world's own Oscars" (New York Post, April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business. The awards were presented during ceremonies in New York City. The ceremonies were hosted by Larry Wilmore of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," videocast live on the Internet, and broadcast nationwide on radio.

In winning the Stevie, Sheet Music Plus beat out other E-commerce Site finalists including Coupon Cabin, PC Connection and Top Ten Reviews.

Sheet Music Plus, based in Emeryville, California, was founded in 1997 to offer musicians access to the world's largest selection of sheet music, with fast delivery and trained musicians offering customer service.

"After being named a Stevie Best E-commerce Site finalist for the past two years, we focused hard to make improvements that would take us to the winner's circle," said Nick Babchuk, Founder and CEO of Sheet Music Plus. "This effort led to the introduction of sound clips on our website, thousands of additional 'look inside pages,' more available titles and quicker shipping. It's nice to have our hard work recognized."

"We're honored to be recognized for providing the best shopping experience possible for sheet music buyers," said Jenny Silva, Vice President of Marketing for Sheet Music Plus. "But we're not ready to rest yet. We are continuing to build on our success and further improve the site in 2007. Some planned enhancements include a new chamber music department, improved instrument search, and enlarged choral and piano departments."
