I use MuseScore daily and figured I'd give the course a try (the price was too low to pass up). It's great - I've picked up a bunch of time-saving tricks and learned about some features I never knew existed. I've just been poking around at particular topics of interest but little by little I'm sure I'll watch the whole thing. Thanks for this great resource! - Jeff

MASTERING MUSESCORE is the definitive written guide to MuseScore 2. This book starts with the basics, walking you through the notation of a very simple song. Next it explores the process of note entry and editing in depth, covering everything from notes and rests to tuplets and grace notes to cross staff notation and feathered beaming. The book then explains how to create and edit each of the many different types of markings supported by MuseScore, including time signatures, repeats, tablature, chord symbols, slash notation, and much more. The book covers score and part organization and page layout, as well as the playback, graphics, import, and export features, and it explains the many customizations the program offers. Hundreds of examples and illustrations are included to make it easy to follow along. MASTERING MUSESCORE is all you need to become an expert in using MuseScore 2, the most powerful free music notation software in the world.


MASTERING MUSESCORE is everything I needed to find out about the inner workings of using MuseScore, which is so powerful that many features may be overlooked without a good book like this. Musescore is free music notation software, but I'm so glad I bought the book, so I can master it. Literally. - Timothy
