Subtilior Music Engraving is proud to work with these fine composers and music publishers.
Nicholas Hopkins has been engraving my scores since 1999, and his caring, dedication and attention to detail are simply unparalleled. He understands the most complex and challenging music in a very deep and profound way. I could not imagine working with anyone else. He is simply the best there is.
Nicholas Hopkins is the only engraver I entrust with my own music, elegantly engraved in Score software, and with helpful editing suggestions from Nicholas as well. I've referred many friends and colleagues to him for work in Finale and Sibelius as well as Score.
Nicholas is the best there is. He is warm, prompt, and meticulous. He has a great eye, very little ego, and is a great cheering section. I don’t even want to THINK of doing this without him. He is part of the team, period!

Nicholas Hopkins has done the computer engraving of a number of my works, including some that present considerable notational challenges. He is a very fine professional, working quickly and expertly. He is very good at spotting potential errors, and carefully proofreads his own work. The visual and spatial presentation of scores and parts are musician-friendly and reliable. His copywork gets consistently high praise from performers of my music. He is, in a word, terrific!
It is always so easy working with Nicholas, who is an expert and a kind person, always generous with his time. He is extremely fair with pricing, and his work is impeccable.
I have known Nicholas since the 1990s, when I hired him as Managing Editor for Carl Fischer. He is a consummate and talented musician, extraordinary engraver, experienced and insightful editor, and a trusted advisor.
