Big Ear Studio was created by Stephen A. Rawson and Martín Quiroga Jr. in the Spring of 2020 after having collaborated on a variety of projects throughout the years. Based in Chicago and Houston respectively, this dynamic duo decided to combine their talents and develop what they envision becoming an industry standard for Music Transcription and Arrangement Services. In combining forces, Stephen and Martín bring a large repertoire of experience; film, social media (YouTube), academic institutions, private studios, choirs, and a variety of ensembles all across the nation.
