"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!"

"I just wanted to let you know what a great pleasure it was working with you. 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!"

"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. "
