The [Uncertain] Four Seasons bass part on stand in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Engraved by Taran Plamondon of Éditions Plamondon


Everyone has their compositional tools of choice: some write by hand, some prefer to write in a DAW. Even if you prefer to write directly into music notation software, your work will benefit from the engraving expertise of a professional. Notation software is an indispensable tool, but it doesn’t automatically create perfect professional charts.

I am proficient in the latest versions of Finale, Sibelius and Dorico, and upon request will use whichever software you prefer to facilitate the collaboration process. I also have Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to assist in the production of front matter such as covers, dedications, and performing instructions. Upon request I will create cover pages for your parts in my signature house style.

Deliverables include PDF Files of the completed scores. I will also provide for free upon request: MIDI realization, MusicXML, and the notation software files.
