Are you interested in composing, arranging, or improvising?

Composing, arranging, and improvising are different activities, but they involve a lot of the same skills. Familiarity with the conventions of music theory, a good ear, a commitment to the creative process, and a healthy dose of inspiration - these are the keys to success. Some of this we may be able to find within ourselves, but often, we need help in one or more of these areas.

Do you want to reach your full potential as a music creator?

If you are like most people, you learn best in the company of other students, where you can each share your own music, ask each other questions, give and receive feedback, and otherwise support each other on your respective journeys.

With that plus regular coaching from a knowledgeable and caring teacher who can see the potential in each student and help them reach it, you can progress much more quickly than you ever could alone.

I can help you achieve your musical goals

My name is Marc Sabatella - director of this Mastering MuseScore School. I am one of the developers and chief ambassadors for MuseScore - the world's most popular music notation program, and I have been teaching music online since the dawn of the World Wide Web. I have helped literally millions of musicians over the years, and I can help you too!

So let's make it happen!

I have created this Music Master Class in which I conduct regular live lessons, answer your questions, provide expert critiques, and generally do what I can to help you in your musical journey. Even more importantly, you will join a community of hundreds of other musicians all learning together and sharing ideas.

The Music Master Class is an online community that grows with you. It is designed to help students with whatever musical problems they are facing, and it is a place where we can all learn from each others' experiences.

How does it work?

In this course, you share the music you create - your compositions, your improvisations, your performances - and get comments from other students while also giving your own comments to others.

Every week I will do a master class by live streaming video in which I take some of the recent submissions and give more in-depth feedback for the benefit of all. I will also answer questions you ask via chat and comments.

Of course, I cannot promise to provide individualized instruction to each student every week. That is why I think it is so important that students engage with each other as well.

What I can do is always strive to make my commentary as useful to as many people as I can, and to continue to encourage everyone to participate.

I will also challenge you to create your best music and to share it with us!
