Transcription and Copying Services

I will transcribe your music from an audio recording or written source and create accurate, beautifully legible music charts so that you can recreate the original musical material with live performers.

Ensembles wanting to correctly cover a song, students wanting to study the styles of soloists, producers wanting to create modern recordings of old film scores all have a need for detailed transcriptions.

If you already have your music written by hand, I can create professional publish-quality scores and parts from your materials. 

If you write your music using a MIDI sequencer, I can convert your MIDI files in to professional scores for publishing and live performance.

One of my most popular types of chart is the Condensed Score. These are highly customized charts that capture the essential elements of a piece of music by giving each musician the essential material for a piece on a single chart that is shared by the entire ensemble. For groups that maintain a large collection of charts, these condensed scores make managing a book of charts much easier. They also allow the performers much more freedom by giving them only what they need to perform instead of giving them too much information forcing them to constantly read the notes on the page.
