    6. Setting a High Bar for Music Preparation and Engraving: Interview with Scoring Notes' Philip Rothman

    6. Setting a High Bar for Music Preparation and Engraving: Interview with Scoring Notes' Philip Rothman

    Today I’m talking to Philip Rothman, founder of NYC Music Services, and one of the world’s foremost experts in music preparation and music notation.  He is also co-host of the podcast Scoring Notes, which covers news and developments of all things related to music notation software.  Be sure to check out Notation Central, where Philip offers a treasure trove of free and paid resources for users of Finale, Sibelius, Dorico, or Musescore.

    We talk about all the work that needs to happens after a composition is finished to prepare it for publication, the differences between music copying, music preparation, and music engraving, as well as how to get the most out of music notation software.  It’s an eye-opening conversation that sheds light into a corner of the music industry that doesn’t normally get a lot of attention.

    4. Getting the Most Out of ArrangeMe: Interview with Hal Leonard's Scott Harris

    4. Getting the Most Out of ArrangeMe: Interview with Hal Leonard's Scott Harris

    In this episode I'm joined by Scott Harris, the program director for Hal Leonard's ArrangeMe.com, a self-publishing platform used by more than 40,000 independent music publishers, including myself.  Our conversation covers a lot of ground, including how to get the most out of the platform, ideas for establishing yourself as an independent publishing company, setting expectations and evaluating success, and how the ArrangeMe program supports songwriters.  Scott's position at Hal Leonard gives him a unique vantage point for understanding the sheet music industry as a whole and self-publishing in particular and I think you'll really enjoy getting to know him and hearing what he has to say.
