Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for visiting my website, and I hope you’ve enjoyed browsing around.
Some frequently-asked questions and information below. If anything you want to know is not answered below, please feel free to contact me!
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE SHEET MUSIC OR ARRANGEMENTS?
A: No, you need to contact the arranger or entity (i.e. Sweet Adelines, International) to obtain legal sheet music for each arrangement. Keep in mind that a group must purchase music and/or pay arranger's fees before being able to legally perform an arrangement in public.
Q: WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW HOW TO CONTACT THE ARRANGER?
A: Feel free to contact me any time, and I'll be happy to give you any arranger contact information I have, or at least steer you in the right direction!
Q: What HAPPENS IF I FIND A MISTAKE IN YOUR LEARNING TRACKS?
A: Of course, I strive for perfection in all of my tracks, but I invariably will make a mistake now and again. Fortunately, because I work with recording software and editing tools, I can usually fix a mistake quickly. Don't hesitate to contact me if you find a mistake, and I will send you corrected tracks as soon as I possibly can!
Q: WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE TRACKS DON'T MATCH THE WRITTEN MUSIC I HAVE?
A: First of all, be sure to check the information on each set of tracks (do this by clicking on the title of the tracks in which you're interested). If I am aware that the tracks are different from the sheet music, I will note this on the website and try to give as much detail as possible. However, sometimes I am not aware of this -- either a client has given me altered music without my knowledge, or the arranger has updated the arrangement since I recorded the orignal set of tracks. If your tracks don't match your music, please contact me and let me know!
Q: What do i get when i order a set of tracks?
A: A full set of tracks includes the full mix (usually four part) and then each part alone, predominant, and missing. For a regular four-part arrangement, this is a total of 13 tracks. I can also mix tracks to your specifications (i.e. with a click track, two parts "duetting," etc.).
Q: how do i pay licensing fees?
A: Mechanical licensing fees are the responsibility of the purchaser. You can learn about and pay mechanical licensing fees by going to the Harry Fox agency website (www.harryfox.com). Mechanical licensing fees are collected to pay royalties to the copyright owners. The arranger owns the copyright on any public domain song. Mechanical licensing fees are affordable and should be taken seriously.
