As a music copyist, my goal is to provide professional-looking sheet music while also creating a collaborative experience for the client. As a small, self-contained service, I am well-positioned to achieve this by providing close, personal attention to the client while also being flexible with my budget when needed.
My prime directive is to produce clear and concise music for your players. When your charts are placed in front of an orchestra for the first time, I want the players to be focused on your work, not mine. I want them to concentrate on your intentions, not on missing bar numbers or confusing accidentals. My dedication to clarity and precision will save you time in rehearsal. And as you know, time in rehearsal equals money!
I also try to build relationships between myself and my clients that are collaborative and enjoyable. My goal is to set you up for success. Every writer has a different process, and I will always seek out the most logical and efficient way for each writer to do what they do best while I work in the background to support their efforts and prepare their scores for the first rehearsal and beyond.
I work primarily in Finale for Mac, but I am capable of converting files from other programs. I can also work in Sibelius and Dorico if needed.
