Not only note-for-note transcriptions, but also the jazzinotes arrangements seek to reproduce the original recordings as closely as possible. However, arrangements can differ from the original recordings in the following ways:

  • The instruments used in the sheet music may not entirely correspond with the original recording. For example, the piano may cover the parts originally assigned to an ensemble or band. Or single instruments are left out and replaced by others.
  • Parts can be simplified in order to make them more easily playable.
  • With some instruments, only the basic patterns are notated, but not the improvised variations.

In such cases, jazzinotes attempts to keep the maximum possible musical elements from the original recording intact (melody, rhythm, harmony, dynamic, etc). We also try to preserve the main emotional content of the song.

jazzinotes offers a MISTAKE-FREE-GUARANTEE for all each of their arrangements. Be sure to see ‘‘yes’’ on the article page after "Guarantee" and you will receive your exclusive guarantee.

Besides note-for-note transcriptions and arrangements jazzinotes offers a last form of sheet music: original compositions


Perhaps the arrangements or transcriptions by jazzinotes do not always fully match your musical wishes or skills. As an example the orchestral arrangement is too difficult for your school orchestra in some sections? Or would you like to have the choir arrangement transferred to your wind quartet? Or the choir arrangement for mixed choir doesn't quite fit your male choir? Or would you like to include instruments that are not part of the jazzinotes arrangement? Or do you actually need a C part of the jazzinotes arrangement transposed to B or Eb? Or would you like to shorten or lengthen the arrangement? Or is the arrangement too "weird" or, conversely, too "harmless"? etc. etc.

In all these cases we can help you by customizing the arrangement for you. That might be cheaper than you think! Get in contact with us, e.g. via We would be happy to advise you and submit you a detailed quotation.
