Who We Are

My name is Marc Sabatella, founder and director of Mastering MuseScore. I am one of the developers of MuseScore (the world's most popular music notation software), and I have been a pioneer in online music education for over 25 years.

At Mastering MuseScore, we have created a thriving community of musicians interested in collaborating and learning together. We provide free resources such as our popular live streams and weekly newsletter. We also offer university-quality courses on using MuseScore as well as in music theory, composition, improvisation, and other creative music skills. We are leaders in accessibility, and our resources can be utilized by musicians who are blind or visually impaired.

Like MuseScore itself, Mastering MuseScore has become famous for both the quality and value it represents.


What We Do

As the name suggests, Mastering MuseScore is most known for its flagship Mastering MuseScore 4 - the most comprehensive MuseScore training in the world. But there is so much more to explore here!


The Mastering MuseScore Community provides a space for you and others to exchange ideas, share your music, give each other feedback, and grow as musicians together. There are also spaces for educators and for blind musicians. The community is free to join!


The Mastering MuseScore School offers some of the best online courses available anywhere, covering MuseScore, basic music theory, harmony and chord progressions, counterpoint, and more.

Live Streams

Every Wednesday in the MuseScore Café, we explore some aspect of MuseScore. I do in-depth demonstrations and answer your questions submitted via the chat.

Every Thursday in the Music Master Class, I look at music submitted by students like you and give my analysis and feedback for the benefit of all. We learn from each other together in this amazing musical experience!


Every week I send out a free newsletter containing information on our upcoming live streams and other events as well as tips on using MuseScore and insights into music theory. And when there is a new course or discount offer, you'll be the first to know!

While you decide which option is best for you, subscribe to our free newsletter and I'll send you some more resources right away that I think you will love!

What Others Say

  • "As I go through this wonderful course, I'm astonished to learn the incredible amount of things MuseScore is able to do! Wow. I am so grateful I found it. Marc, you are an extraordinary teacher and presenter! Your language is precise, clear, and descriptive. Thank you for this fantastic resource for musicians!!" - Christopher B.
  • "Wow. This has been, truly, not just a learning experience, but a real odyssey. Marc, your course has not only met what were some pretty lofty "hopes" I had for what it *might* be since that first sneak peek that captured my interest (your demo of doing a SATB arrangement on Twinkle, Twinkle) - it has vastly exceeded them. Per hour of time expended in this course, I can say that it has definitely provided more lightbulb moments than any other form of musical education I've ever signed up for, and that includes band classes, classical piano lessons, university undergrad course on music history, reading/watching various books and videos, etc." - Frank P.
