Q: I have sheet music to a song that is not in your catalog; are you able to record it?
A: Absolutely! That's what Let's Play It is all about. We are your digital accompanist and orchestra, ready to help play your pieces to rehearse, study, audition, and perform with! We're happy to play Musical Theatre and Pop songs alike.
Q: I don't have sheet music to a song, as it doesn't exist. Can you take a listen to the song, or look at this lead sheet, and produce accompaniment to it?
A: Unfortunately, due to time and availability, I do not currently offer transcription services. I must have a complete sheet of accompaniment in order to produce a track. However, for piano accompaniment, I have used and suggest the fine people at http://truepianotranscriptions.com/, as well as http://tunescribers.com/ for situations like this, and they have always come through with great precision! Please give them a look at helping to produce sheet music that may not currently be available for a song. For fully orchestrated instrumental transcriptions to be produced through us, please inquire about service availability through our friend and colleague Daniel Hayles at www.danielhayles.com/about.
Q: What is the difference between piano accompaniment and an instrumental?
A: Piano accompaniment is just that - the piano part to your requested song, and our instrumentals are fully orchestrated, multi-instrument tracks, with no backing vocals.
Q: How much does a service like this cost?
A: As listed on our Services & Pricing page, all Piano Accompaniment is $5.50 (USD), Instrumentals are $10.50 (USD), and Sheet Music services range from $12.50-$32.50 (USD) per song.
Q: How long does production take?
A: Also listed on our Services & Pricing page, most Piano Accompaniment and Sheet Music services are produced and delivered within 24-72 hours. However, Instrumental delivery can take between 24-hours to 1 week, based on what we currently have produced and orchestral requirements. Please plan accordingly so that we may serve you in the best possible way!
NOTE: Rush-Orders can be done, but an increased pricing may vary. To inquire please e-mail: email@example.com
Q: Do you produce full shows for Theaters, Schools, and other Organizations?
A: Yes, we do! We have worked with many theaters, schools, and other organizations over the past 10 years, to help provide production tracks for companies that aren't in a position to hire an orchestra. Pricing does vary per production, based on the number of production cues, orchestra size, material quality, and need-by dates. That being said, our goal is to provide quality production instrumentals at an affordable price, so we only charge one flat fee for production, with no per-performance fee, and you get to keep your files - no extra equipment or rental material required! Please note, you must have a production contract through Concord, DPS, MTI, TRW, or any other rights management company to be eligible for this service. If you're interested and in need, please feel free to submit an order request through our Place An Order page, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
