Music Setting

Mister Harvey has spent rather more time than your average Joe using Sibelius software over the years. As a result he has inadvertently become something of an expert, and is often requested to edit and prepare sheet music for performance or publication. Below are some of the larger projects he has been involved with over recent years. Works range from short small-scale works (studio session parts etc.) up to full-length orchestral ballet scores and their manifold respective parts, often with complex percussion or innovative contemporary compositional writing. He’ll get some pdf samples on here too, just as soon as he has a minute – in the meantime though, samples can be sent on request if you would like to inspect the quality of his work.
