Steve's interest in music transcription began when he was in high school. In learning to play jazz vibraphone and piano, he began transcribing and learning to play the solos of his favorite jazz musicians. He accepted his first paid job transcribing music while a music student at the University of Michigan. Since that time, he has transcribed thousands of pieces of music and created lead sheets, rhythm section charts, full orchestral scores, big band arrangements, and musical theater books.
Besides accurately notating music in terms of pitch, note value, dynamics, etc., being a great transcriptionist requires a thorough knowledge of orchestration and of the various capabilities of the instrument(s). Steve's absolute pitch, fluency with notation software, and attention to visual detail have made him one of Los Angeles' most in-demand music transcriptionists.
Sheet music is delivered to clients as PDF files for printing or publishing, and can also be delivered in a professionally printed and bound format if desired. MIDI files, SIB or MUS files (for Sibelius or Finale), or MusicXML files will also be provided if requested.
