Frequently Asked Questions

Music Services

How much are your services?


Prices vary depending on your project, budget, and your needs. Contact us for a quote!




How long does it take for you to transcribe a song?


Sheet music for a transcribed song typically can be delivered within 24-48 hours depending on the length, complexity, and quality of the audio recording.




How does sheet music preparation work?


Kevin has extensive experience as an arranger, copyist, transcriber, and proofreader. He has been preparing and editing sheet music since 2004 and with a sharp attention to detail, he is available for all your music preparation needs from transcriptions to audition cuts, full score & part engraving, orchestrating, editing your original music, proofreading, refining and cleaning scores and parts, create audition cuts for singers, orchestrate, transcribe and arrange any project. ​Final projects can be in the form of PDF's, printed scores, or MXL file formats.




What are rehearsal tracks?


Rehearsal tracks can be used to aid in the learning and practicing process for any performer or production. They can be customized to include just the piano, or you can have a custom track made with a full band or orchestra.




Can I make edits to a finished score?


Absolutely. We can tweak and edit till you are satisfied. However, major edits, revisions, and changes will be billed accordingly.




What is the difference between arranging, orchestrating, composing, and transcribing?


Arranging is the art of reconceptualizing music that already exists. A new arrangement of an existing piece can include reharmonizing, new voicings, or giving a piece musical variety. Orchestrating is the art and ability to take already written music and distributing it to multiple instruments and parts or scoring it for various ensembles. Transcribing is the ability to take live or digital audio and put it to paper. Think of the transcriber in a court room who dictates what he/she hears and types out a transcript word-for-word. Except this is with music, not speech. Composing is the art of creating and writing something brand new and original from scratch that hasn't been heard before.




What type of gear do you use?


We use all the industry standard software: Logic Pro X, Finale, Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, and Sibelius. We also have hundreds of orchestral and instrument sample libraries at our fingertips to turn any track or recording into a great sounding work of art.




How do you charge for larger projects?


We work with retainer fees for larger projects depending on what we are working on.




How much are your retainer fees?
