    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!

    Seohyun from girls generation made her solo debu and her song DONT SAY NO was really good. I’ve seen most of your covers and they’re amazing and I hope you would try a cover of this song.

    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?
