A Short review: MuseScore
By longtomjr I asked my dad, longtom, to help find me an app that would play my sheet music and he stumbled upon MuseScore. This is great for musicians of any kind ... even drummers. It can display tabs and does have a LOT of instruments available. So, here is a short look into it. At the start, you choose the composer and lyricist, which is a must when you want to post it on the .com website for other users. This will also make it a lot easier to find.
The great thing about MuseScore is that it has a lot of scores available at the web site. You can also visit the official website at http://musescore.com. You can also “watch” video scores, where the score is displayed on the left side of the screen, and it follows along with the video that is displayed in the right side of the screen. To make a new project, you can use the wizard. It is very user friendly.
Here you can choose to start from scratch or use a template. We will use a template. When you use a template, you will choose from a couple of sheetformats and then choose your sharps or flats. This is a handy app. What makes it different from other score apps is that it plays every instrument. Just one more thing. MuseScore can display tabs, drumlines and LOTS of other instruments. Also, a lot of tutorials are available on YouTube.
