The reception of a presentation or publication often hinges on the
quality of its diagrams, charts, and figures. In many cases, however,
authors find themselves at a loss to produce visual examples of a quality
that matches their scholarship. Although notation software has improved
by leaps and bounds in recent years, complicated interfaces can be intimidating
to the occasional user—if not outright unapproachable.
I am therefore pleased to offer my services in helping you prepare
your work for presentation or publication. As a graduate student in
music theory at the University of California, I've had first hand experience
with conferences and the publication process. I know the caliber of
work expected at this level of scholarship and would be delighted to
provide you with stunning visual examples for your paper, article, book,
what I offer:
I am available to help you through the process of preparing visual
examples every step of the way, regardless of whether your working copies
consist of hand-drawn notes or exist in a more fully-realized state.
I can produce professional diagrams, tables, charts, and figures suitable
for publication or presentation from any source. (Schenkerian analyses
and other complex analytical graphs are a personal specialty!)
See below for several samples
of work I've done in the past.
Many publishing houses require visual examples to be submitted in
very specific formats. I am ready to work with you and your editor to
meet these specifications in as efficient and timely a manner as possible.
I work with both major musical notation software suites (Sibelius and
Finale) and can realize any other type of diagram you can think up. I am
capable of providing MIDI realizations of musical examples as well.
In certain circumstances, I will also be able to help with the preparation
of PowerPoint presentations and web design. Feel free to inquire for
more details. My contact information appears to the right.
My rates are negotiable and I am willing to work out some kind of
arrangement that will fit your budget. I typically charge $20 per hour
worked and can provide estimates based on samples you send me.
