Tom was about 12 when his music teacher at school realised he had perfect pitch during a lesson. Tom told the teacher all the notes he’d been playing and the teacher seemed surprised that he could tell; Tom thought it was obvious because he assumed that everybody could hear exactly which notes were being played too. As he got more and more into jazz, Tom started transcribing – he can now do note-for-note transcriptions of nearly anything. He has done Jamiroquai, Herbie Hancock, Oscar Peterson, Wynton Kelly, Sting… and he has done many charts for his own bands in the past. Tom is available to hire for transcribing services, whatever instrumental line-up you are interested in. Please get in touch via the contact page if you wish to enquire about his rates – it obviously depends on the complexity of the music you wish to have transcribed. Tom uses Sibelius to transcribe and can provide a .sib file and .pdfs as well.
Tom will hopefully be hosting all his transcriptions on this site under this page; it will take some time to get everything sorted out so in the meantime, please check out the videos below to see the kind of transcriptions he can do.
