I specialize in adapting existing music for new voicings & instrumentations.

I require:
  • Song/piece of music of choice (if inaccessible via Youtube or Spotify, an audio file)
  • The desired instrumentation
  • [Optional] Sheet music (if available; I will provide a discount)
  • Any other special considerations (difficulty level? structural/stylistic changes to the music?)

Pricing varies depending on a large number of factors, but is guaranteed to not exceed $10.75/voice per minute of music.

Unfortunately I do not provide guitar arrangements at this time (other than lead sheets with chords).

Accurate, practical audio-to-notation transcriptions at the highly competitive rate of $9.60/voice per minute of music.

I require:
  • Song/piece of music of choice (if inaccessible via Youtube or Spotify, an audio file)
  • [Optional] Instrumentation (if not provided, I will make my best guess)
  • Any other special considerations (full song or excerpt? timestamps?)
Unfortunately I do not provide guitar transcriptions at this time.
Note I do not provide speech-to-text services. If the music contains lyrics or speech, you may be required to provide the text for typesetting purposes.

Professional engraving services for scores and parts. Save precious rehearsal time by ensuring your music is as clear as possible.
An extra set of eyes for proofreading purposes. I will include an errata list with the first draft for your review.

I require:
  • Sheet music
  • Any other special considerations (font choices? page layout?)

Services available in Finale v26 (and older versions v25, 2014.5, 2012), Dorico 3.5, and Sibelius 7 upon request.

Deliverable as PDF, and upon request as MIDI realization, MusicXML, and Finale/Sibelius/Dorico notation file.

Pricing depends on format.
  • For handwritten/PDF sheet music we offer the highly competitive rate of $8.90/page.
  • Music already in notation software (Finale, Sibelius, Dorico, or any other MusicXML-compatible software) is eligible for much lower rates, starting at $4.50/page.
  • MIDI output from DAWs (such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Ableton, etc.) typically falls under “Orchestration” but at a 30% discount.

Generate a MIDI mockup of your music for demo or reference purposes with the AI-based playback engine NotePerformer 3.

I’m pleased to offer this for free upon request with the commission of any notation project (see above three categories).
Stand-alone MIDI mockup is $7.50/voice per minute of music.

I require:
  • Sheet music
  • Any other special considerations (separate instrument tracks?)
Deliverable as MP3 or WAV.

Custom MP3 click tracks generated in Ableton Live 10. Ditch the metronome and record your project with a dynamic click that ebbs and flows with the phrasing of the music.

I require:
  • Song/piece of music of choice (ideally as sheet music)
  • List of desired tempos and tempo fluctuations
  • [Optional] Click sample (otherwise I will use my own “finger snap” and “drumstick” samples)
  • Any other special considerations (panning? reference track?)

Pricing will vary depending on the length, tempo, & complexity of the music. A basic click w/ reference track (a MIDI bass line) is $5/minute.

With the commission of any notation or MIDI realization project (see above four categories) I am pleased to offer click track production for an additional flat rate:
  • $11 for <5 minutes
  • $19 for >5 minutes
