Your music is awesome!
I want the musicians who play from your scores to see that so they can bring it to life!
– That's what goes through my head whenever I work on a project.
Unfamiliar with the term "engraving" in this context?
- The short version:
- Sheet-music copyediting.
- Slightly longer:
- The art of making printed music clear, beautiful, and easy to read. You can see some examples of my work here.
The term comes from the old process of metal plate engraving; The name just stuck.
Check out this interesting video of the old engraving process.
There are many engraving services which will receive your manuscript, diligently transfer it to the computer verbatim, and send it back to you. It's a valuable service and they do it very well ...and that's not what I do.
I offer my skills as a performer and a fellow composer to help you communicate the depth of your music through the score.
So, what can I do for you?
Are you preparing for publishing?
Getting ready for a reading?
Producing a songbook?
