"Many thanks for your commitment to the editing of my songbook. I received far more help than I realized was needed. Your comments were respectful, generous and emerged from a solid knowledge of the way music notation needs to appear on the page. Your work was altogether efficient, fast, and yet careful. I was very impressed with your ability to note inconsistencies, not only in the notation formatting but also in managing to work with an unfamiliar transliterated Hebrew text. I would highly recommend you for this work, and hope to have other opportunities to work with you."

"You do excellent and beautiful work. It's such a thrill as composer to see music of mine move from a bunch of ink scratchings to images that justify publishing for the public. It's only when music is published in a clear and reasonably definitive version that its merit (or lack thereof) can be assessed in terms of its usefulness. It lives or dies, beginning at that point. No more, no less."

"I just wanted to say a personal thanks to you and your team. The score preparation for "Guys and Dolls" and "Gypsy" was, as always, right on schedule and wonderfully accurate. Though our work always needs to be done quickly, I have confidence that, with you doing the job, our orchestra rehearsals will go smoothly. I’m sure we’ll be calling you again. "

Sterling Tinsley
Orchestra Manager, The 5th Avenue Theatre
"Robert Puff recently engraved my new orchestration of the recently published piano score of Diane Overture by Claude Debussy.  I had written out the entire score by hand and had to have it printed with a relatively short time before the first rehearsal.  Not only did Robert do a terrific job with the materials but was a thorough editor as well.  I have had several works engraved for performance with orchestra but this is by far the best experience I have ever had.  It was a total and absolute pleasure to work with Robert and I look forward to many future collaborations.  He is one of the best of the best!"

You cut my stress level in half, and the end musical result is much better because of your efficiency and attention to detail. I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the near future, and best of luck with all of your upcoming projects."

"Robert - You are an excellent copyist, bar none. My old 1968 - 1995 hand written copyists would turn over in their graves upon seeing such beautiful work!"

Richard Hieronymus

"The instrumental / vocal scores for our new children’s musical, "Land of the Lost and Found" are GREAT.  Instead of simple piano reductions, you've created sparkling arrangements that truly capture the spirit and style of each song. For groups performing with live music, these arrangements are going to make an incredible difference.

We appreciate you being such a supportive partner in making the final product the best it can possibly be. When we embark on our next song projects, your company will be at the top of our list. "
