Jonathon did a great job, as always. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Jonathan did it again. Awesome job like always. Thank you for your work.
Great job like always. Thanks, Jonathan.
Jonathan did excellent work. I love working with him. He always exceeds my expectations.
Jonathan transcribed some music from a Youtube video which I want played live at my wedding. He did and excellent job and went above and beyond to offer advice and provide a couple of different versions for me to chose from. Extremely grateful. Thank you very much Jonathan!
Jonathan is great at what he does. We will continue to work with him until he decides. I am so pleased with his work. Thank you, Jonathan. Great work.
Thank you Patrick - always a pleasure to be working for you!
Jonathan did an excellent job. He knows what one is asking for and his work is professional. I will definitely be working with Jonathan again. I do recommend him highly.
Excellent job, really helpful.
Jonathan communicated very well, was attentive and listened professionaly to what I wanted to achieve.
He was very patient due to the lack of information I could give from my incapability to read music.
The final result was perfect and I was even more impressed that Jonathan had done such a great job just by listening to the piece of music I had provided.
Thank You, Jonathan!
Jonathan has been great to work with. Very thorough attention to detail and the finished scores look excellent.
Excellent and very thorough.
Jonathan was great! Really diligent, professional and friendly. Worked incredibly efficiently to our (slightly odd!) brief - we will definitely be back for more!
