SONGWRITERS: Need your songs transcribed to sheet music?

If you are a songwriter, but you just don't have the music notation knowledge to write out your brilliant ideas for other musicians to play, Ray Christensen Music & Sound can help. Your music can be transcribed from audio files to lead sheets, parts or full scores so any musician can play your music exactly as you envision.

DIRECTORS & EDUCATORS: Need arrangements or parts transposed or transcribed for other instruments?


No french horn player in band this year, and you want the F horn part transposed for tenor sax? Doing a joint concert with the choir and you need some choir pieces arranged for your orchestra? Lost the bari sax part for a jazz band chart? Ray Christensen Music & Sound can provide for any and all arranging and sheet music needs. Fast turnaround, and very affordable!


Sometimes you need an audio file you can play at home to practice with as you prepare for an audition or performance. Send a scan of your sheet music in PDF form to Ray Christensen Music & Sound and an MP3 piano accompaniment can be created for you to practice with.
