Music Notation Software

Thanks for the offer! I am in with the free trial now and searching myself.

Second score I found was also slightly incorrect :slight_smile:

Searching randomly has been fun though. This score is cute:

He took something similar to the first and last measures of the Joy Division song Disorder and made his own neat little song.

Yes, you can find all kind of zany stuff in there as well… stuff that could basically never be played by humans, but also crappy unfinished and really bad scores. You have to look for the good stuff - unfortunately, no curation of any kind.

Yeah. Pretty sure I’m going to just cancel already. Seen enough.

Their app is great though!

Probably the same here… but, I have already paid until Oct 21… so, if you need something, I can try and find it.

Yep! Bit of a learning curve, but worth it (for me, personally).

By the way, most teachers would have you transcribe from scratch anyway, rather than search for existing scores :wink:

Agreed 100%

The time spent transcribing is also excellent ear training!

One of my current classes is Ear Training and while we use musescore to do our transcriptions, it’s a blank slate, don’t use the other paid part.

Agree with Joe and Pam, it’s time well spent learning to do your own transcriptions no matter how maddening it can make you…and learn your solfege first, it will make transcribing easier. Josh’s beat ruler is good for the rhythms too,

Rhythms aren’t the problem for me - mostly I need scores for discerning keyboard chords. Not up there with ear training yet to be able to do that.

Late to the party as well here, but I found flat.io the best place for seeing tab and sheet music together when you are constructing some music. I also like the fact that it is in the cloud, a modern interface, and not overwhelming.
