Text copyediting | Music proofreading

I copy-edit academic books and articles on classical music and proofread sheet music.


About me

I specialize in copy-editing academic books and articles on classical music (particularly music of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries) for publishers and individual authors, and have edited material for The New Grove Dictionary of Music (second edition) and other Grove music dictionaries.

I also proofread music, especially vocal and educational works. Since 2014 I have been based in the USA, but I continue to work mainly for British clients.

As an active musician I am a member of a symphony orchestra, a string quartet, and a choir.

I have a good working knowledge of French and German.
