Orchestration and Arranging

Original compositions can be orchestrated and/or arranged - from solo instruments and voices to large ensembles, orchestra and choir.


Music can be transposed to any desired key. This can easily be done, but often involves re-typesetting the music into score and therefore the same fee structure applies as for a new score.

Special Notation

Any type of special notation requirements can be catered for, including guitar tab, chord symbols and drum notation for use in jazz and rock music. Figured bass and other early music notation. Avant garde notation for contemporary music.

Midi Files

If you have composed your music into a sequencer, your work can be saved as standard midi files and then converted into music notation. You can also have arrangements of your music created into standard midi files.


Exam papers, tests and quiz layout masters prepared. Also - have music arranged and scored for your orchestra and choir.
