Music Transcription Service

Here’s where you can engage my services to transcribe ie. write out the notes, for any music that you would like to sing or play, if you can’t find the sheets anywhere else. I can arrange music for any instrument you wish to play.



Below are the kinds of scores I transcribe/arrange, along with the rates (in USD$ per minute of material). The actual price depends on the complexity of the material. Discounts are given for bulk orders. Payment in other currencies is also available – just ask 🙂

    Recently Joyce helped me to transcribe a piano piece. Her work is accurate and professional. The source recording I sent her has issue with the piano tuning plus many other timing problems, but she was still able to transform it back to a beautiful butterfly! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs transcription service. Thank you Joyce!

    Hi Joyce. Thank you so much for your transcriptions! It is nearly impossible to find such amazing transcriptions! Also if you have the time or the desire to, can you please do a cover of under the sea?

  5. All Things Annie says:

    For the transcription service, when you say $20-$45 (@minute) do you mean per minute of the song? So if the song was 3 minutes then it would be the rate times 3? e.g. $20 for 3 minutes = $60 total? And then the rate depends on the difficulty of the song?
