MuseScore Review

Felix Cheng
A freeware music notation program
A review of MuseScore by Felix Cheng

MuseScore is a musical score editor (sheet notes) which supports standard MIDI sequences. When creating a new document, a friendly step-by-step wizard will ask for data on the composition and the list of instruments to use, among other options.

When you enter "N", MuseScore enters into the edit mode, giving you the opportunity to insert the notes from the side panels with simple drag and drop. To edit what you've created, exit edit mode first. Each element can be manipulated with the mouse.

The vast selection of symbols included is more than enough to create something with MuseScore. If you have a MIDI instrument, a button from within the interface will enable the entry for these devices.

With the ability to save to PDF, print your music or play through the sound card, MuseScore meets most requirements of composition and provides a free way for musicians to create sheet music right on the PC.

MuseScore features and highlights:
  • WYSIWYG, notes are entered on a "virtual note sheet"
  • Unlimited number of staves
  • Up to four voices per staff
  • Easy and fast note entry with your keyboard, mouse, or MIDI keyboard
  • Integrated sequencer and FluidSynth software synthesizer
  • Import and export of MusicXML and Standard MIDI Files
  • Available for Windows, Mac and Linux
