TRANSCRIPTIONS

Below, is the list of transcriptions I've published, for educational purposes, on YouTube. To support this work, and access more PDFs, you can become a patron (click here). Transcribing and  playing these pieces, as well as other transcriptions I found online greatly contributed to my development as a jazz pianist. 

Welcome! Have you ever heard a tune and wished you could play it yourself note-for-note? Transcribing is a diligent but fruitful process that makes this possible. This involves listening to a recording and notating what you hear into sheet music. Recently, some software has alleviated part of the transcriber's burden of copying by ear, but the results are far from accurate, especially for more advanced pieces. To achieve near-100% accuracy, all of my transcriptions are done purely by ear. 

I also do paid transcriptions (piano, guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, etc.) by request. For details and to commission a transcription, contact me at tgondolamusic@gmail.com or through contact page.

Testimonials

"Superb transcription! 100% accurate! I was very impressed when in just 4 days I received a note-for-note transcription of a rather difficult classical recording. The pricing is very generous. Thank you, Timothy, for a perfect transcription that you delivered in such a short time. I would certainly recommend this music transcription service to any serious musician, especially when time is of the essence. Thanks, again."

"I just received Timothy's transcription of the solo version of a popular Chick Corea composition. After sight-reading through the whole thing several times, I'm extremely impressed with his work and abilities! I've already commissioned a second transcription and have signed up as his patron. Keep up the great work Timothy!"

"Thank you for your great transcription of "Cumana". If anyone wants something to be transcribed I would definitely suggest Timothy Gondola. With great appreciation."
