MuseScore Workshop

Music notation software is a wonderful way to write out ideas, play them back, input your compositions, create exercises, arrange music, and much more. This workshop brought to you by Music Literacy Ireland in collaboration with Francis Long takes you through the fundamentals of MuseScore from setting up a score to creating a single line melody, through to writing SATB as open and closed scores. This workshop will allow you to navigate the primary functions of MuseScore with ease whether you are a novice or already have some basic knowledge of the software.
