custom music engraving pricing

The pricing of custom music engraving's many services is determined by the complexity of the music and the number of measures.

The music's complexity is calculated using factors such as:

> the density of articulations and expressions
> complicated rhythms
> uncommon elements, such as free measures or unusual beaming
> lyrics

The total number of measures is determined by:

> multiplying the number of measures times the number of staves
> subtracting the number of empty measures from the total

Other factors that might affect the price include:

> the legibility of handwritten music (if applicable)
> your timeframe (e.g., rush orders)
> custom page size or paper type


Typical Costs

The most common service is transcription of handwritten music to an electronic score (Finale and PDF files). The price depends upon the complexity of the music. See the samples page for types of music ranging from very simple (about $4 per finished 8.5 x 11" page*) to extremely complex (up to $40 per page).

Part extraction from an electronic score ranges from about $1 to $4 per 8.5 x 11" finished page.
