[Edit from Leon: Get access to over 1200 pieces of piano sheet music for free for 30-days. Check it out here.] Here are a list of 10 of the best sites online for free sheet music.
My two personal favorites are the free section from VirtualSheetMusic.com, a site with over 80,000 digitally downloadable pieces and the IMSLP collection which has 1000's of scores of classical pieces including full orchestra scores, which are great for composers to study.
Most of these sites contain piano sheet music but you will find music for many other instruments as well including guitar, violin and other strings. Also a few sites have music for woodwinds, brass and voice.
