Info updated on:

MuseScore is an advanced music composer that allows you to create your own symphonic master pieces from scratch; you will choose from dozens of grace notes, key signatures, articulations and many other symbols that will help you build original and professional sheet music.

This efficient application will give you direct access to the forum community where you can get all the help you need to create these compositions and also read the latest news and announcements and download free music sheets to inspire from.
On the left side of the screen, you will find all the symbols you need to build the master pieces, from note heads and articulations to brackets and clefs. The program comes with a built-in audio player where you can check the audio composition and decide whether to add or remove symbols from your music sheet.

Once you've finished building the audio creation, you can save it in multiple formats, such as .XML, .PDF, .MID, .OGG. and many other.

All in all, MuseScore is a handy application that helps you create amazing symphonic master pieces and share them with your students.

MuseScore is an absolutely amazing WYSIWYG (read: What You See Is What You Get) music score editor. I use it regularly to arrange and compose many different genres for many different instruments. The layout scheme so flexible, you could call it a music typesetter. It is one of the only DRAG-AND-DROP apps of its kind. (Oh, Finale was such a pain to use…) Imports/exports just about any format you can think of; I've used it back and forth with Finale via MusicXML, and the results are pretty amazing. It's free now, and will be forevermore, so I can rest at ease knowing that I won't have to learn another program ever again.
