About Scott Bell

Welcome everyone to my Patreon page! My name is Scott Bell, a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and new resident of Los Angeles, CA. I am a trumpet player, producer, and I love to transcribe and analyze music.

I first began transcribing music when I was in high school and wanted to bring in new music for my a cappella group. Instead of finding rare (and often inaccurate) copies of music online, I took it upon myself to transcribe songs by The Hi-Lo's, Take 6, Straight No Chaser, and other YouTube arrangers. It quickly became a fun hobby and a challenge for me to hear difficult harmonies and is something I love to do in my spare time.

Soon after moving to LA, I started creating weekly solo transcription videos entitled Transcription Tuesdays which I post on my Facebook & Instagram pages. After doing these for a few months, I was surprised to see these videos gain attention and that people loved to see their favorite songs written out on paper. My goal now is to take this to the next level by expanding my work from 1-2 minute long solos to putting out full-length song transcriptions for you to see.

Why Your Support is Important to Me
After graduating from music school, I moved out to Los Angeles to further my music career. As a full-time freelance trumpet player, my income isn't always consistent or completely guaranteed month-to-month. And while transcribing has been a fun activity of mine for many years, it can be very meticulous work, sometimes taking days or weeks to fully complete a song and make it look presentable.
That's where you come in! With your help and generous donations, you can help me not only continue my living here in Los Angeles, but to also continue to transcribe and release high-quality videos and, who knows, eventually turn this into a full-time job. A contribution of $5 per month is the price of a cup of coffee, but will go even further in the long run to help grow my channel. A donation of any amount is extremely appreciated and helps me continue to create these videos for the foreseeable future.

Sharing My PDF's
I will be sharing some of the transcriptions I have done, released on YouTube & Instagram. There are ways to obtain these transcriptions and request your own by selecting one of the membership tiers:

Patron rewards include:
  • A special thank you at the end of each video I release on YouTube.

THANK YOU, and welcome :)
