I can produce typeset music for pieces of music or old songs that only exist in a recorded form. Simply send your MP3, CD, minidisk, tape or vinyl record and I'll produce the dots.

The music can be notated exactly as heard on the recording to include all the vocals and full accompaniment or can be reduced to simplify the notation eg for use in rehearsal. See below for examples of this sort of transcription.


Please note, the piece to be transcribed must be your own copyright or in the public domain. Please get in touch to discuss this further.
