Forte Music Editing is committed to helping composers and publishers make their music look as good as it sounds. 

From full-input engraving to editing and proofreading, Kathleen Ballantyne has a sound knowledge of print production. Services currently available include:

  • Engraving: Input and/or manipulation of your score in Sibelius. I can work with a variety of formats, including manuscript, Finale/XML, or Sibelius.

  • Editing/layout consultation: If you're already very comfortable with using your notation software of choice, I can directly consult with you on how to polish your score to make it both optimally readable for your musicians and efficient in terms of space. Highly recommended if you are thinking of submitting your work to publishers!

  • Proofreading: For scores that have already been through the engraving/editing process, proofreading is available on a per-page basis.
