MuseScore: A Subalius or Finale Want-to-be Sometimes in our classrooms we are so overloaded with pressures to teach Language Arts and Math that we fail to teach music. There just doesn't seem to be time for the arts in our schedule. Perhaps you do not feel qualified to teach music theory and composition. Any teacher can help students explore the mechanics of music by letting them explore and create sheet music using this powerful open source program. Students with no musical experience will discover what music notation is all about, and advanced music students will love this program because it give them an easy way to notate their musical compositions. The program is powerful and very complete. With a little time, any teacher could create accompaniments for songs they wish to sing in their classroom—even if they don't play a musical instrument. Sheet music can be printed or played, and yes, there is a method for entering scanned sheet music into the program although this process is not very trustworthy yet. Transpose your music, print out individual parts for instruments from your conductor's score. Export MP3 files of your music, or link to a MIDI device to enter or play your music. This is a great program at a perfect price—Free—for music exploration.
