- Transcription: Audio to notation or MIDI

TRANSCRIPTION: Audio to notation. You can get a PDF that is ready to print, publish, hand out to the band…Or get a Finale, Sibelius, MuseScore, or XML file if you want to make further edits.
TRANSCRIPTION: Audio to MIDI. You can get a MIDI file that is optimized for Synthesia, or get a MIDI file that is ready to place in your DAW. Alternatively, if you are a Garageband or Logic user, I can send you the project file.
INPUT/FORMATTING/PROOFREADING: Notation or MIDI. Have a handwritten score or old-fashioned engraving that needs to be digitized? Have a score but no parts, or parts but no score? A MIDI file to turn into a score?
ARRANGING & ADAPTING: You can request a piano reduction, ensemble orchestration, choral harmonization, jazz harmonization, practical rhythm section parts, etc. for your custom project.
MUSICAL THEATRE: Get your show ready for the stage with P/V scores or parts for a pit band. Playable piano reductions, character assignments, and stage directions are all taken care of.
PEDAGOGY: Provide the piece you want to play and a reference for what your student can already play. I’ll make it work at their skill level based on my research and practice in teaching.
CHORD CHARTS: Sometimes you just need the structure and form of a song done fast.
JAZZ SOLO TRANSCRIPTION: Can’t figure out that super-duper-ultra-locrian-augmented-19th-superimposed-negative-harmony lick by your favorite jazzer?
Quality assurance: a human element
All this is done by an actual, real live, human…a professional performing, directing, and teaching musician.
