We offer a 96 hour delivery from payment on transcriptions and reductions. Need it sooner? We offer a 24 hour rush delivery option at an additional cost. In case of emergencies, we might be able to provide your service sooner than 24 hours. Arrangement and Engraving delivery times are determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the complexity and length of the request.
We understand the high demands placed on music teachers! There’s always a need for new music, custom arrangements, and replacements for those parts that never make it back to school. We are happy to create custom arrangements for any of your ensembles. As former K-12 music teachers, we can understand the skill level and needs of your students. Whatever your needs are, we can help. We offer a rush 24-hour turnaround time on most jobs, so give us a shout when you’re in a pinch. Contact Us to chat.
That depends. If you have an idea and need some help, let us know. If your request fits within the general area of music notation, we can probably help. We’re happy to talk it over with you! Contact Us now to chat
Arranging is the art of rewriting a piece of music to fit a new set of standards. Maybe you want to change the key, the style, the instrumentation, the harmony; arrangement covers it all. Reduction is the practice of taking a piece of music and transcribing it accurately, while simplifying the piece for fewer instruments.
We don’t formally offer this service, but we can proofread or correct your transcription for a custom price. We can either correct any mistakes, or simply mark them so that you know what needs to be fixed.
