When you write a copyist cover letter, be sure to tell the hiring manager your experience transcribing musical parts onto staff paper from a score written by an arranger or orchestrator for instruments and voice, using knowledge of music notation and experience and one's background in music. All copyist cover letters should showcase the applicants' experience and knowledge of this field.
