Preparing your music for performance or publication

I trained in the library of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra as a manuscript copyist, writing out parts by hand. I have been a Finale-based engraver since 1989. I work quickly, with scrupulous attention to detail and accuracy.

I accept projects of any size, including transcribing scores from recording or MIDI. I can also polish scores already completed, through copy editing, proofreading, or generating parts. Contact me to discuss details.
