|What is an arrangement?||An arrangement can be done from
existing sheet music for another
instrumentation (such as from piano music to string quartet). Often
clients ask for a custom arrangement for a special event (such as a wedding) in
order to get exactly what they want.
|What is a transcription?||
Transcribing is done when there is no previously printed music, therefore a recording must be listened to carefully and the notes written down in order to create sheet music. This can be done for original compositions, or a very popular piece that has never been published as sheet music.
For original works, the recording should be made using the best quality equipment and media available to the composer. A muffled recording or ambient room noise will lengthen the time it takes to transcribe a piece.
|What are your rates for arranging/transcribing?||The rate for either arranging or
