I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and found a way to celebrate safely! A few news items to share this week, regarding the MuseScore Café, the Music Master Class, and our "We Gather Together" project.

First, though, a very important reminder: our Black Friday sale ends when Cyber Monday does - end of day Monday, November 30. So if you've been waiting for the right opportunity to jump on our fantastic deal on the Music Creators Bundle (a package that incldues Mastering MuseScore: Complete Online Course, Basic Music Theory, and Harmony and Chord Progressions), there is no better time than today, since it's an additional 20% off the already-discounted bundle price! Of course, the indiviual courses themselves are also on sale. The links above include the coupon already applied, but if for whatever reason you don't see the discount, be sure to add coupon code BF2020 during checkout.

The rest of the week sees us return to our normal routine of offering the free MuseScore Café on Wednesday and the equally free Music Master Class on Thursday. Both are live streams on the Mastering MuseScore channel on YouTube. We go live at 12:30 Eastern time (17:30 GMT), so that's when you will want to join us to participate in the live chat (definitely recommended!), or you can catch it in the archive later.

This week in the MuseScore Café, the main topic is text - the different kinds of text you can add, tips for editing and formatting it, and some of the special things MuseScore can do with it.

In the Music Master Class, I will do a short demonstration involving some simple harmonies for a Christmas song and kick off a little challenge for you! Then I'll take a look at some student submissions from the past couple of weeks.

Finally, for those of you who haven't seen it already, we completed our "We Gather Together" project and it went fantastically well. Thanks to all of the vocalists and instrumentalists who contributed to its success! Here for your continued holiday enjoyment is the completed recording:
