    Consummate professional. Hired Judy to play piano but also as an arranger this time for my cover of "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!" and it was incredible work. Made sorting out the fun 1940's style block harmonies much faster and straightforward and the song benefitted from the details she put into the arrangement.

    Judy is a pro. She plays phenomenally, she makes smart musical choices to get to the best take possible and she goes above and beyond to help you get the best version of your track. Communication was excellent and prompt. Can't say enough great things about her!

    Judy is truly wonderful to work with and amazingly talented! Another project perfectly done. I needed a piano track with a quick turnaround. Not only did she finish a day early, she suggested adding strings which really filled out the track.

Interview with Judy Shin

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: If you clearly know what you want, try to be as detailed as you can. Reference tracks always help! If you don't, that's okay. I'll help you find it. Be honest with giving feedbacks; clear communication is key.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Nord electro 3, Yamaha 88-key keyboard, imac (3.6GHz Intel Core i7), Komplete 12

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: Key, Tempo, Style, Reference track(s), Deadline

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I have a very good ear (perfect pitch), which allows me to learn and play songs almost instantly. Also, versatility; I've performed and recorded so many genres that I feel like a chameleon sometimes. Harmonic sensibility is my plus as well!

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: On Soundbetter, I get a lot of piano recording requests for covers and originals, to which I get to add my own twist when allowed. The twist can be harmonic or rhythmic, or really, any variation that suits the project and my clients appreciate my creativity added to their work.
