Of course! In this case, we recommend one rhythm chart for the rhythm section – piano, bass, and drums – and one rhythm chart for the melodic instruments. This way, everyone will have a rhythm chart that adapts to their needs.
You can find all the information on our rhythm charts here.
Rhythm charts are a type of musical notation that conveys the essential content of a song in a concise sheet music score. Rhythm charts can often be followed by multiple different instruments as they only contain general information. For a big band, you could get one rhythm chart for the rhythmic section – piano, bass, and drums – and one rhythm chart for the melodic instruments (in the different transpositions). You can find all the information on our rhythm charts here.
Full (note-for-note) sheet music includes all the details. Everything that every instrument plays is written out fully, exactly as it sounds in the recording you provide. You will have a separate sheet for each instrument. For the solo sections, we can either write them out fully as well or only include the chord symbols so that you can improvise.
Yes! In a rhythm chart, we don’t need to transcribe all the instruments note-for-note so the process is considerably faster.
Yes, definitely! In the price quote, we will include both options: full score only, or full score + individual parts.
That’s up to you! We can certainly write out all the solos note-for-note, exactly as they sound so that you can play exactly the same solo as the one on the recording.
However, if you prefer to improvise the solo, we can just write the chord symbols so that you can play your own original solo.
We can also do a combination of both – just let us know which instruments prefer written solos and which prefer to improvise 🙂
Our prices are based on three aspects: the density and complexity of the music, the song length, and the number of instruments. Send us the song you want transcribed, as well as your exact instrument lineup (for example: Alto Sax 1, Alto Sax 2, Tenor Sax 1, etc.), and we will send you a price quote.
You can find some more pricing information here.
That is not a problem! Please let us know your exact instrument lineup (for example: Alto Sax 1, Alto Sax 2, Tenor Sax 1, etc.). We’ll adapt the song to your specific needs and we’ll make sure it still sounds amazing!
Yes! Feel free to send examples of pieces you have played before and we’ll match the level of complexity in our arrangement for you. We can both simplify or make the music more complex, just let us know your preferences!
Yes, certainly! Please let us know how you would like to arrange the piece. For example: which instruments you would like on the lead melody; which instruments you would like for the solos; if you have any creative preferences, or the different playing levels among instruments (don’t forget to send us your exact instrument lineup). We will make sure the arrangement is 100% customized!
Yes, it does. In order to ensure that we provide you with the best price quote please let us know your exact instrument lineup (for example: Alto Sax 1, Alto Sax 2, Tenor Sax 1, etc.)
Indeed! Let us know if you nee them so we can provide you with the best price quote.
We can transcribe all songs and music genres! Send us your songs and we’ll transcribe them – whether it’s piano covers, guitar TABs, jazz solos, vocals, orchestral themes, or original compositions. We’ve got you covered!

All instruments! We’ve got an expert for every instrument on our team, guaranteeing your specific request is in the hands of the right specialist. We also have professional arrangers, copyists, and a quality control team that will make sure everything is spot on.
No. If you only want a portion of the song, let us know what timestamps you want and we will adjust the price quote for you – we won’t charge the cost of transcribing the full song.
Yes, we’re here to help! Here are some of the things we can do:
1. You request a quote – Send us the music you want us to transcribe (an audio file or a Youtube link!) and give us all relevant information: instruments, timestamps, difficulty, and arrangement details.

Our standard delivery time is 1-2 days and we also have a rush order service!

If we transcribe your original music, we will not withhold any rights on the transcriptions. The scores provided will belong to you – you can distribute, share, and sell them as you wish.
We transcribe and arrange music by ear, manually typing it into our music notation software note-by-note. This is a detailed and thorough process. We do not use any music transcription software because it delivers poor results and at My Sheet Music Transcriptions, we strive to provide a world-class transcription service.
All of our transcribers are professional musicians who take pride in their craft.
We are a team of 40+ professional musicians, transcribers, arrangers, and composers. Our headquarters are in Barcelona, where we started our journey, but we now work with musicians from all around the world – mainly across the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe – with a strong presence in New York and London! Our mission is to spread music globally through customized transcriptions and arrangements.
We have been growing since 2011, and have completed more than 32,000 transcriptions so far. We believe a friendly customer service and a talented group of music transcribers is the best way to provide you with the sheet music you have always wanted.
We have an extensive and diverse clientele: from original composers and songwriters who want their music transcribed to music lovers who want to play their favorite songs but cannot find the sheet music online, and gigging musicians who don’t have the time to create their sheet music themselves.
Our work ranges from big projects with orchestras, bands, musicals, and schools to individual projects, with both professional and amateur musicians.
What we all have in common is that music is our passion 🙂
