Jazz would not be the same without John Coltrane. His incredible saxophone solo in Chasin’ the Train made an impression within My Sheet Music Transcriptions, and this is because John Coltrane’s saxophone sheet music transcriptions are unreal. His short but very intense career awarded him with a posthumous Pulitzer Price in 2007 among many other recognitions. Having collaborated with many musicians, the most celebrated collaboration was with trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk.

Frequently asked questions

John Coltrane

How accurately can you transcribe a saxophone solo?

We work note by note so we guarantee accuracy in our transcriptions

I would like a saxophone solo to be transcribed for trumpet; can you do it?

Yes, just let us know in which key you need it and we will accommodate to that.

 

I love this tune for saxophone but the solo is too difficult for me. Could you simplify it?

Yes, for sure. We can either simplify the solo, transcribe it as originally played, or we can leave it blank with only the chord symbols on top so you can improvise and create your own solo!  Let us know which option works best and we will make it happen for you.

Do you include the chord symbols?

We can definitely include them if you need them. Just let us know so we can provide you with the best price quote.

I want to play the solo exactly as John Coltrane plays it; is this possible?

Yes! Our expert jazz team and saxophonist will make sure to provide an accurate transcription so your solo sounds like the original!

Music services

Which songs can be transcribed?

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!

Which music styles do you transcribe?

All music styles, all genres: pop, jazz, Broadway, rock, classical, R&B, blues, reggae, country, hip-hop, EDM, folk, African music, Indian music… you name it!

Which instruments do you transcribe?

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.

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.

Overall, how does it work?

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.

2. We assess and adapt – We are all music transcribers: we will listen to your music and get back to you with a price quote that suits your needs. An in-house specialist is always ready to take care of your project.

3. You place the order – When all details and the price quote have been agreed on, you will place your order securely to get us started.

4. We transcribe – Our professional transcribers will craft your transcription as agreed. We will ensure the process is smooth and keep you updated if we have news or questions.

5. You enjoy the music – 100% satisfaction – We will send you the completed transcription in all the formats you need to print or use it.

We will make sure everything looks good to you. Adjusting any small details that might have been missed is our job too.

How do I get a price quote?

Send us the music you want us to transcribe (an audio file or YouTube link!) and let us know all the relevant information: instruments, arrangement details, preferred deadline, etc. We will get back to you with a price quote within the next 1-4 hours!

How long does it take?

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

Larger or highly complex projects may take a little longer. Let us know your preferences – we will strive to meet your deadlines.

I need a transcription done urgently. Can you help me?

Yes, we have a rush order service for urgent requests. Get in touch with your requirements and we’ll take it from there.

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 🙂
