Our Background
Clef-tec has extensive music experience in preparing music both for publication and for use in live situations. Clef-tec can handle any job from a full scale symphony or opera to a short instrumental piece. We deliver high quality accurate scores with a fast turnaround time.

Cleftec is fronted by Ric Lloyd a BAFTA award winning composer with over 30 years in the UK music business. After completing his studies at university he  has  worked extensively as a composer, performing  musician/ arranger and as a music engraver/copyist.

Recent projects include preparing full orchestra parts for three compositions by Swedish composer Jonathan Östlund and also typesetting musical examples for the publication ‘French Opera in the Age of Rousseau’ (Cambridge University Press) by David Charlton.

Clef-tec's main base is in a Creative Unit at Aberystwyth Arts Centre with a smaller office in London E2.

Our rates are very competitive both for music engraving and our other musical preparation services. Pricing for each job is assessed individually. Prior to the commencement of a project we will gladly provide a free estimate of cost. Once a final quote has been given the price will not change unless the requirements of the job alter.

We accept personal cheques, national or international bank transfer, and electronic payment via Paypal

Finished work may be shipped by either by e-mail, courier or post. A fast overnight service is possible. Completed product can be sent back to you in the form of a high-quality PDF file.
