Sep 12 2022 • 32 mins

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.
