Songwriter

It was once the dirty little secret of the recording industry that many artists did not write their own music, but today consumers understand that behind a teen pop queen or platinum-selling group, there is often an unsung hero who receives only a brief mention in the fine print of the album’s credits.

Transcriber

Transcription, in musical terms, formally refers to the process of writing musical notation based solely on a recording of the song. Recording artists are not in the habit of composing sheet music for all instrumental parts on a track, nor do contemporary musicians always play a song precisely how it was written. A transcriber can take a commercially released album or recording of a live performance and put written notes to each musical part.
