Transcription Music


It is the way of writing the music in such a way that one type of music can be played by any type of instrument. In recent days, due to the increasing competitions, the Transcription has reached to a high level. It is something like music composer A.R. Rehman may not read or write music. A music transcriber converts the musical melody to a printed form. Alternatively, if some piece of music was written to be played for, say, harmonium and was to be performed on other musical instrument, say, flute, then too transcription comes into the picture. The notes of the music remain the same but the quality of sound changes owing to the difference in the instruments. The difference between transcription and arrangement is that in transcription the transcriber follows the original note strictly while in an arrangement the arranger can take some liberty with the original notes.
