I sent Curtis an mp3 Sept 23, he agreed a price of $40 for the job, and I gave him the go ahead. After a couple of nags, (which he encouraged), I received the 3 page transcription last Thursday, Nov 15. The transcription is perfect, and he transcribed it to Alto from tenor aswell.

If you want an urgent transcription, he may not be your man, but he is very nice to deal with, and very accurate.

Hope this helps!

If ordering off his list of existing transcriptions you can just contact him with the order. That means PayPal - make sure you identify which transcriptions you want (by number) and count up the total pages to work out the cost. I think it is 50c per page.

They come as pdf files, emailed to you.

This might be slightly off-topic and I hope I don't offend anyone by asking this, but isn't getting someone else to do a transcription for you missing the point of the exercise?

I thought the act of having to listen, absorb and reproduce an piece of music supposed to be a fundamental part of developing a jazz vocabulary, as well as developing your ears and ability to really hear what's going on because you've deconstructed it and put it back together?

Confused...

I hope it doesn't become compulsory. I'm having enough trouble playing let alone transcribing music to be able to play it as well... :)

Just asking the question about a service someone is offering,no doubt people have used this service for convenience,dont think it any difference than if you buy a music book,maybe some people just want to play something right away.:)Bumnote.

There are many good reasons for using transcriptions... Ít's legit. But if you want to do it yourself - and can, then go for it.

I think transcribing is a great tool for learning as you've described and have done a few myself but I wouldn't hesitate to use someone else's if I needed a speedy turnaround as I take weeks!! Aldevis did provide a great link for Speedshifter which has helped enormously though :)
