Yes, but if you opt to self-publish, you will have to pay a largish sum up front for the permissions on copyrighted music, since they don’t like writing contracts for a small number of copies.

This is where you start researching the copyright holder:

And be aware there are two different kinds of permissions:

1. Permission to arrange–this is ONLY legal permission to alter an arrangement for your own performance, not to publish print copies of that arrangement.

2. Print permission as a work for hire. That’s what you will need.
