Frequently asked questions

Cello Transcriptions

Do you do cello transcriptions?

Yes, we do. Our professional cello players will take care of your transcription. We transcribe covers, solos, orchestral parts… you name it!

Can you transcribe a song played by another instrument so that I can play it on the cello?

Yes, definitely. We can adapt any song, played by any instrument(s), for cello. Our professional musicians will create custom sheet music for you.

How much does a cello transcription cost?

Our prices depend on the length and complexity of the music. When evaluating the price of a trumpet transcription, we listen out for the speed, density of notes, rhythmic and harmonic complexity, and repeats. Send us a link or audio file of the solo you want us to transcribe and we’ll send you an accurate price quote.

You can find some more pricing information here.

Can you add fingering and bowing marks to the sheet music?

Yes! Let us know if you need this so we can provide you with the best price quote.

I have the sheet music of a cello song and I would like you to create a piano accompaniment for it. Can you do it?

Yes! We can create a beautiful piano accompaniment so that you can play it with a pianist.

Besides classical music, what other genres can I play on the cello?

The cello is a melodic instrument that can be used to play any kind of music and genre: classical, pop, rock, jazz… the list goes on! Our experts can make any tune sound good on the cello 🙂

I would like to play a cello song together with another cellist. Can this be done?

Yes, our musicians will create a duet for you and your friend to play together. We can keep one cello on the melody and one on the accompaniment throughout, or we can make sure that both the accompaniment and the melody parts are equally distributed. Let us know what you prefer!

I love this cello song but it's too difficult for me. Can you help?

Don’t worry! We can simplify the music for you and accommodate the transcription to your playing level!

I want to play this song but I don’t like the originally key because it has too many accidentals. Can you change it?

Sure thing! We can transpose it to a key that’s easier to read. Let us know the maximum number of accidentals that you feel comfortable with and we’ll find the key that sounds the best.

If we have transcribed the piece for you, we’ll change the key at no extra cost.

If you already have the sheet music and would just need a transposition, we have a specialized transposing service for just that!

I play in a band. What kind of transcription do you suggest?

If you want to cover a song that already has a cello part in it, we can transcribe that violin part exactly as it sounds in the original recording.

If you want to play a song that doesn’t have a cello part in it yet, we can create a beautiful violin part that fits in with the rest of the instruments.

If you want to improvise and just need a concise score to follow the harmony and structure of the song, we can create a chord chart or a vocal lead sheet for you.

Can you arrange a cello song for a string quartet?

Certainly! You can visit our String Quartet service for that.

Can I have the cello playing the lead melody in a string quartet?

Yes! We transcribe everything manually so we can cater to all of your preferences. Just let us know what you have in mind and we’ll make it happen for you. You can visit our String Quartet service more information.

Can you do a backing track for me?

Yes, we have a special Backing Tracks and Productions service for just that! We can create backing tracks with a variety of instruments (piano-only, full band, etc.). We also have several quality and pricing options. Whether you just need it for practice, or whether you want a professional-sounding track to perform with, we can help!

There are three songs I want to play - can you do a medley/mashup of them for me?

Yes, we can! Let us know what order you want the songs in and we’ll make it all tie together seamlessly.

If I only want a portion of the song, do I have to pay the full price?

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.

I don't know how to read sheet music very well. Can you help me?

Yes, we’re here to help! Here are some of the things we can do:

  • Create a Synthesia (piano only) or Soundslice (any instrument) tutorial for you.
  • Simplify the piece to suit your level.
  • Add fingering suggestions in the most complex passages of the score to help you learn the piece.
  • Add educational large noteheads with note names.

I am a songwriter and I want you to transcribe my music. Who will own the sheet music?

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.

How do you transcribe music? Do you use a transcription software?

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.

Who are you?

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.

Who do you usually work for?

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 🙂
