Let me create your sheet music in the keys you need. I can accept songs in a variety of formats and create professional-looking sheet music using Finale software.

Give me... And get...
  • Handwritten music
  • Sheet music in the wrong key
  • A recording on CD
  • An MP3 or other sound file
  • Pristine, easy-to-read print-outs of the music in your key
  • A perfectly formatted PDF file of the sheet music e-mailed to you, which you can print out

Pricing is as shown in the following table. A "lead sheet" is a single staff with the melody, lyrics, and chord symbols. A "piano-vocal score" is usually three staves: one for each voice part (melody and lyrics) and two for a complete piano accompaniment and, if the music is substantially chord-based, chord symbols. Per-page prices refer to the end result; the number of output pages may not be the same as the original sheet music. Per-minute prices depend on the difficulty of the music -- higher per-minute prices apply to music with fast notes or complicated chords; I will give a quote after hearing the music.

If you have... And you need... The price is...
A lead sheet A lead sheet in the same key or a different key $15 per page
A piano-vocal score A piano-vocal score in the same key or a different key $15 per page
