Orchestral Programmer / Classical Composer / Metal Guitarist
Amorphis / Angra / Moonspell
Services Available from Jon Phipps Music:
Orchestration (Arrangement / Programming / Production)
I work with premium sampled instruments in Logic Pro X to create virtual orchestrations, either elaborating on the clients ideas with orchestral arrangements, composing original parts to accompany the recorded instrumentation, or providing more authentic sounds for pre-composed material.
Composition (Classical / Metal / Electronica)
Classical pieces can either be provided in notation for live performance, or they can be produced with software instruments, depending on your requirements. I would record the guitars and bass for metal tracks myself, with programmed drums, using top-quality samples. Electronica tracks would be produced in Logic Pro X.
Transcription (Notation / Tab / Midi)
I can notate with great detail any style or complexity of music, whether it is in audio, guitar tab, or midi format. The finished transcription will be presented in a performable and publishable format of the highest standard. Depending on your requirements, either Guitar Pro 6, Sibelius 7, or Logic Pro X can be used for this process.
Tuition (Guitar / Bass / Music Theory)
Tuition can be conducted either via Skype or in person. With both options, the lesson material is negotiated and prepared in advance of the session, based on what direction the student wants to take their playing in. Relevant theoretical, technical, and creative content will be included to support the study of songs and solos.
