Are you a natural born musician? Do you love to compose songs with different instruments? Then I'm sure you will love MuseScore, because this musical score editor will simplify your work, and your results will be exceptional.

At first, the application will open a demo file for you to see the potential of the program. If you want to create a new score, you can do it from the File menu. There you will see a new wizard that will guide you through the steps before starting to add musical notes to the new composition. During these steps, you will have the opportunity to add as many instruments as you want. There are literally hundreds of them perfectly classified: Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion, Guitars, Vocals, Keyboards, Strings, and more. And finally, you will also need to select the time signature and the number of measures.

After the wizard is completed, you will be able to add musical notes by placing them with your mouse, or typing the respective notes by pressing the corresponding letters C,D,F,G,A,B on your keyboard. Or if you have a Midi keyboard, you can use it to enter the notes too. Moreover, there are many other features that you can select - e.g. color the notes or show the notes names - that is, from the program's interface you will be able to create your music scores with full details. Finally, once your project is done, it can be saved in many file formats, like PDF, MID, WAV, SVG, XML, etc.
