Services Include

Copying & Engraving

We turn composer’s sketches into fully realized sheet music and scores, in both physical and digital formats. Using modern software like Sibelius we can correct errors and make new performance options possible while maintaining the highest standards of design, layout and craftsmanship. In addition, we engrave music of older editions to fit the needs of modern day conventions.

We can deal with a wide variety of formats, sizes, ensembles, and notations. By working with your style guide or by creating one for you, our attention to detail ensures that your music will be properly showcased for performance, publishing and reproduction, with deliverables in the notation software format of your choice, print-ready PDFs, or printed music.

Printing

Don’t want to take your music to the next copy shop because they don’t understand the particularities of music printing? We will do it for you: Just send us PDF files or music notation files, and we can professionally print and ship your music — even if we did not prepare it. We will check your files for printing and work with you to correct any issues before they hit the press.

Our services include:

  • Scores of any size up to A3, printed and wire-bound
  • Parts or scores at A3, booklet folded and saddle-stitched
  • Parts and scores taped accordion-style for recording sessions or special performance situations
  • Full colour printing
  • Express shipping service domestically or internationally

Orchestration

We take composers’ sketches and MIDI files and transform them into orchestrations, that are ready to be recorded by studio musicians, all while meeting the demands of a fast turnaround.

Transposition

The piece you want to play with your band is in B major, but you need it in F major for your next concert? Our music transposition service can take any piece of music and transpose it to any key. We can transpose everything from standard lead sheets to full orchestral opera scores. We can also transpose individual instrumental parts, like a trumpet in D to trumpet in B-flat.
