Bespoke musical arrangements:
You want to commission an arrangement from us - how does it work?
- You decide what piece of music you would like us to arrange, what instrumental/vocal grouping is required and when it is required by.
- You email us and we ensure that we understand exactly what you want.
- We tell you how long your commission is likely to take, the earliest date by which we could have it completed and the probable status of the copyright.
- We agree a fee (based on the information above).
- Depending on whether or not you are a new client, you pay either immediately (i.e. before we deliver the finished work to you) or thirty days from Invoice date.
- When the commission is complete, we will email you a PDF file of the full score, plus a separate PDF file of each individual part (in the case of instrumental music). We will also email you an mp3 of the arrangement. If it would be useful, we can also produce mp3s highlighting each individual part (no extra cost). These will all be computer-generated mp3s (no live performers) but will serve to show roughly what the live version will sound like. For non-classical pieces, we will also email you a PDF or .doc file of the chord sheet (with lyrics), so that if the arrangement is a cappella your pianist will still be able to add a basic accompaniment in rehearsals if necessary.
- If the arrangement needs tweaking - e.g. you decide you want the whole thing a semitone lower after you've tried it - we will do that at no extra cost.
- If you request it, we can print out all the PDFs for you and/or put the mp3 onto a CD, but we will charge extra for this.
- Upon receipt, if you are dissatisfied with the work, we would, in the first instance, endeavour to address your issues, but if you were still unhappy we would refund the full fee.
- Please note that after we have created an arrangement for you, we reserve the right to sell copies of it on this website at a later date.
- If you wish to buy any Bespoke or Going Solo arrangements, we will explain its copyright status. In cases where we know that the original work is under copyright but we have not so far been able to obtain permission for the arrangement, it will your responsibility to obtain copyright.
