Chart Writing

Simon Johnson Music offers a basic chart writing service. Charts are very important as they provide the exact information needed for a band to play a song even if the band has never heard the song before.


A singer need only to concentrate on what they’re doing and should feel confident that the band are all working together by following the same chart. Good charts are critical.


Some professional musicians will refuse to play with you if you don’t have acceptable charts, 'Chords over words are not professional' 'Quality charts equals quality performance'
