Frequently asked questions

String Quartet Transcriptions

Do you do string quartet transcriptions?

Yes, we do! Our professional transcribers and string players will take care of your transcription.

Which instruments are in a string quartet?

Standard string quartets include two violins, one viola, and one cello. Nevertheless, we can adapt it to the instruments you have available. Just let us know what you need!

Can you arrange a song for a string quartet even if it is not originally played by a string quartet?

Certainly! We can arrange any song from any musical style to be played by a string quartet.

If you have any creative preferences, let us know. For example: if you want the main melody distributed between the first violin and the cello, we can do that!

What happens if the song is for string quintet but I want to play it with my string quartet?

That’s absolutely fine! Our transcriptions are 100% customized so we can adapt the sheet music to your string ensemble.

Can I have the cello or the viola playing the lead melody in this string quartet?

Yes! We transcribe everything manually so we can cater to all of your preferences. Let us know what you have in mind and we’ll make it happen for you 🙂

Will you send the individual parts as well as the full score?

Yes, definitely! In the price quote, we will include both options: full score only, or full score + individual parts.

How much does a string quartet 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 that we can provide you with the best price quote.

I want to play this song with my string quartet but it's difficult for us. Can you help?

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

Feel free to send us some examples of pieces that you feel comfortable playing and we’ll match the level of complexity.

I want to play this song with my string quartet but we 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!

There are three songs I want to play with my quartet - 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.

I will hire a string quartet for my wedding and I want them to play this song. Can you help me?

Definitely! We’d love to be a small part of your special day 🙂 We can create sheet music that you can send directly to the string quartet you hire. Let us know what song(s) you want and we’ll take care of the rest. We can also do a mash-up of several different songs if you like! Our services are 100% customized – you can share your vision and we’ll make it happen.

I need a number of songs transcribed for my string quartet and I need to make sure we can sight-read them easily on the day. Can you help?

Sure thing! Our professional transcribers and arrangers will make sure the string quartets are easy to sight-read on the day. We’ll make sure the scores are clear and user-friendly so that you have one less thing to worry about!

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?

Go to our contact us page where you can fill out our contact form or find our email and phone numbers. 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 🙂
