A Sample From the Score to 'Johanne'

The next step after composing and orchestration the music is the process of preparing the sheet music for the musicians to play from. This process is called 'Music Preparation' or 'Score Preparation' (Score Prep). 

The composer might deliver the music as a handwritten score or (more often today) as a digital file. The score preparator then starts converting the music into a form legible by musicians. The conductor score is usually prepared first, from which the instrumental parts are then extracted . The professionals who work on preparing music for a session are commonly called "copyists"

Of course it's always best to actually see what something looks like - I've therefore attached a sample page from my 'Johanne' soundtrack for you to download. Please do keep it private. 

Have fun!
