Kathy Parsons has been proofreading original sheet music for composers and arrangers for more than
ten years. She has been a private piano teacher since 1981 and is an excellent sight-reader. Her
experience as a teacher gives her insight into what will confuse a pianist or cause him or her to
stumble, and she can suggest alternate notations, fingerings, and phrasings as well as catching mistakes.
Her reasonable rates and quick turnaround time can get your sheet music online or ready for
publication quickly and efficiently.
When you send Kathy your scores, she will play through them a minimum of three times at her piano
to find obvious errors and things that don’t sound right. She will then go through the sheets with
the CD or MP3 files at least three more times, proofing to the recording. She will email you her
findings, measure by measure. You can then make the corrections as you see fit, and email the revised
sheets for final proofing.
The fee for this service is $25 per hour. Unless pieces are very lengthy or difficult, most can be
proofed in about an hour. Please email Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org
more information. References will be furnished upon request.
