How does it work?
How do we produce music arranged just for you, just the way you like it?
Well, you design your own arrangement.
WHAT WILL IT COST?
It's worth bearing in mind that the more complex the arrangement, the more it will cost. So melody line and chords will be more economical than 2 or 3 stave arrangements, and adding features such as counter melodies, arpeggiated left hands and so on will also add to the price. To give you an idea: a simple song written as melody line with chord symbols will be around £15. A single-stave song which we have to transcribe from a recording would come in at £20. A more complex arrangement on more than one stave, arranged to exacting requirements, would cost in excess of £25.
FIRST, YOU GIVE US YOUR DETAILS:
Name, email, instrument or voice, and your chosen piece.
NEXT, YOU CHOOSE A FORMAT:

THEN YOU CHOOSE ADDITIONS:

FINALLY YOU CHOOSE KEYS:
You can either select your favourite key, the original key, or indicate the maximum number of sharps or flats you prefer.
THEN YOU CLICK SUBMIT ON THE FORM:
Using the information you have supplied, we check that we can find the piece you want. If you have supplied copies or recordings, that obviously makes it a good deal easier. We can re-arrange copies to your requirements, and we can transcribe recordings by ear. However, we can usually trace a piece if we know the title, maybe the composer or an artist who performed it. If you can supply a link to it (on YouTube for example) that is very helpful.
WE COME BACK TO YOU
All arrangements are costed on a time basis, based on the minimum rates stipulated by the Musicians' Union. Once we have all the information at our fingertips, we can promptly supply you with a price, and ask if you wish to proceed. If so, we issue you with an e-invoice which you can pay simply and safely on-line.
Then you just sit back, relax until you receive a PDF of music arranged just for you, just the way you like it!
