I'd be most grateful if you could kindly answer the following question:
Q.: What is the English verb that describes an act of writing down the musical notes while you're listening to a piece of music?
(Notes: You're not composing anything new, but you're just writing down exactly what you hear.)
Thank you very much in advance for your kind help.
You may sometimes see "transcribe", but in music that word has other meanings as well, so it could be confusing.
Dear Teachers (MikeNY and Rewboss),
Many thanks for your quick replies. With the two English verbs you kindly provided does it make sense if I write something like the following, given the same context?
" Dear Steve,
" Thank you very much for the music CD. I specially love the second song you recorded. I'll notate this song and teach my younger sister how to play it on the keyboard. "
" Dear Steve,
" Thank you . . . I'll have this song transcribed and teach my younger sister how to play it ... "
Thank you very much again for your help.
Hello, it is ncbksin
Thank you very much for your replies. Thanks also for your interesting question, which indeed provided me another opportunity to practice using the new vocabulary item in diferent contexts and to consolidate my grammar knowledge about the causative case.
