Tin Pan Alley
Selected Resources from the Music Department - Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
What is Tin Pan Alley? Who is Tin Pan Alley? Where is Tin Pan Alley? Can I get recordings of Tin Pan Alley songs? Can I find the printed music for Tin Pan Alley songs?
No matter your question, the Music Department at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has the answers when it comes to this prominent segment of American popular song. We have books that discuss various aspects of Tin Pan Alley, the composers and lyricists (biographies abound!), the history, the influences on and how it influenced subsequent music history, and even a book on how to get into Tin Pan Alley written in 1939! We have printed music for an amazing number of songs including the complete Irving Berlin and George Gershwin among others and collections of popular songs by decade. Our CD and DVD collections also feature many Tin Pan Alley composers and the artists who made their songs famous.
