About DiRico's Sheet Music
This site began on September 8th, 2006. It features a collection of original arrangements of video game sheet music for piano.
About the Arranger
I am a self-taught pianist and played the trumpet in middle school and high school. I have been arranging and transcribing sheet music since 2005. I attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst and graduated with a major in mathematics.
It is my goal in my arrangements to stay as true to the original music as possible without sacrificing playability. At times, finding the perfect balance of both can be challenging and, unfortunately in some cases, impossible. Nevertheless, I transcribe because I enjoy reconstructing the pieces of music for piano, and I hope that those who stumble upon this site may find these sheets useful for their personal uses.
If you ever play an arrangement from this site, I encourage you to upload it and share a link! I always enjoy seeing people perform my arrangements.
Thanks to everyone who may visit regularly or who may even be visiting for the first time. Knowing that there are people out there that appreciate my work makes it all worthwhile.
To create my arrangements, I use MakeMusic's notation software Finale.
Embarrassing as it is to admit, in my earlier days of arranging, I used MIDIs found online to discern the notes. Because MIDIs are subject to human error in their creation, some incorrect notes may still exist in my older arrangements. Now, however, I transcribe exclusively from the game's original music. SNES games are particularly accessible to me because I can isolate each sound channel and transcribe each track one by one, guaranteeing the perfect notes and rhythms.
All sheets are original arrangements by me; taking any and claiming them as your own is plagiarism. If you would like to put these sheets on your own site, please ask. Without approval, the use of these sheets on any other web site or as a part of any public display is strictly prohibited, and a violation of copyright. Furthermore, the content on this site may not be published in any form of media publication unless I have granted permission. These sheets are for private use only; you may print them as you please, but you may not use them for profit in any way whatsoever. As of right now, no sites have permission to host these sheets, so if you see any, please notify me immediately.
