My name is Marc Sabatella, and I am the founder and director of the Mastering MuseScore School. I am one of the developers and chief ambassadors for MuseScore, the world's most popular music notation software. I have been teaching music online since the dawn of the World Wide Web, and I have been teaching in person for even longer. From the publication of my groundbreaking Jazz Improvisation Primer back in the 1990’s, to my years on the faculty at major music schools, and culminating in this Mastering MuseScore School, I have dedicated most of my life to helping as many musicians as I can.

MuseScore is a fantastic tool for writing music. But knowing how to work the tool isn't all there is to creating music. I have been teaching music online for longer than just about anyone. So why not let me help you as well?

My Basic Music Theory course covers all the fundamentals such as notation, pitch, rhythm, intervals, major and minor scales and chords.

My Harmony and Chord Progressions course picks up where Basic Music Theory leaves off, diving deep into chord voicing, voice leading, use of diatonic chord and inversions, use of non-diatonic chords such as secondary dominants and borrowed chords, modulations, commin idioms, and more.

Or, for the best value, check out my Music Creators Bundle, which combines the MuseScore course with both of the theory and harmony courses. It's like a whole year of a college music curriculum, all for an unbeatable price!
