"Music Transcription" in Japanese Hey, I've got a question. How do you say "transcription" in Japanese, as in hearing and writing down the notes of an existing piece of music? I found the word 音写, but this seems to be more like transliteration. Also, how would you say it in verb form? So: to transcribe something. Thanks in advance!

That's 採譜, a formal word. We say 耳コピ(copy by ears) in a casual way. Example: Youtubeにある曲を耳コピした。
