I offer the highest quality of music preparation services to clients around the world on their projects, and always meet their deadlines. I carefully note their preferences and requirements, so the final product will be exactly what they're expecting, or better.

All the scores and parts which I prepare for my clients are always easy to read, beautifully laid out and most importantly, completely accurate.

Transcription from Audio

Using a well-trained ear and modern technology in tandem, I provide a service to transcribe your music from any audio source (such as a .wav, .mp3, CD or YouTube video) into beautiful music notation which is easy to read and completely accurate to the original audio.

I have a lot of experience transcribing single and multiple lines of music in all styles, from classical to jazz and pop.

I can transcribe a single instrument line from the audio or all the instrument lines for you, as well as chords and lyrics if needed.

This song got me really into loving my trombone in High School; This transcription [Body and Soul by Bill Watrous] alone was huge inspiration for the career I have today. It cannot be overstated how much of an impact this video has had on me. Thanks a bunch, Matt
