MuseScore

MuseScore

MuseScore is a graphical WYSIWYG music score typesetter.

Notes are entered on an "virtual note sheet". As notes are entered, the score is immediately reformatted. It uses the LilyPond project's TrueType fonts.

The program has a clean user interface, with fast note editing input similar to the step-time note entry found in the popular commercial Scorewriting software packages, Finale and Sibelius.

MuseScore is a outgrowth of MusE, a MIDI sequencer for Linux. In 2002, Werner Schweer decided to "cut MusE's notation capabilities out of the sequencer and rewrite it as a standalone notation editor". The rewrite is based on the cross-platform Qt toolkit.
