About the Scores

My goal is to publish clear, detailed, accessible, high quality sheet music you will enjoy playing, so here are just a few things I do:

I proofread each score. Three separate times. And then backwards.1
Because you shouldn’t have to figure out or overlook mistakes.

I provide clear tempo/style markings with suggested metronome markings.
Because vague terms like “Moderately” and “With Love” won’t help you play great music.

I include suggested fingerings on the trickier passages in piano scores.
Because you have better things to do with your time than untangle your fingers.

I never use block piano chords that span more than an octave.
Because, like me, you may have a hand span with an octave limit and music should be accessible to all.

I lay out scores to print on the fewest sheets of paper without sacrificing readability.
Because scores should be easy on the eyes and easy on the environment.

I honor copyrights and give credit where it’s due.
Because it’s not nice to steal stuff.

  1. Despite my best efforts, occasionally an error slips past me. Should you find one, I’d be grateful if you’d drop me a note (pun intended) so I can correct it for future editions. 

One thought on “About the Scores

  1. Your blog is such a wonderful gift! I studied liturgics years ago with Dr. Marion Hatchett at the University of the South. He used to tell us the background of many hymns, and it’s wonderful to find a new source of those great stories. I look forward to being a regular reader!
