Score Preparation & Transcription

Does this sound like you? You just added the final touches to your musical project, but the score looks clunky and hard-to-read. I will work with you to create a clean, professional-looking score. I've done score preparation, most notably for the Berklee Musical Theatre Club, the Berklee Broadway Band, and the album Put the Q in Jazz. I will also transcribe classical, jazz, and anything in between. Contact me for rates and more details.
