MuseScore Workshop on 15-Nov-2010

We have conducted a one-day MuseScore workshop on 15-Nov-2010 successfully! Special thanks to Ms. Kathryn, a very famous piano teacher in Malaysia, for making the workshop possible! She helped to recruit some students, lent her house as the venue, and arranged very nice refreshments (tea-break, lunch, high tea) for all of us.

We have covered the following topics in this workshop:

  • Morning Session
    • Basic Operations
    • Note Entry
    • Lyrics, Beam Properties, Repetitions
    • Transposition
  • Afternoon Session
    • Performing Directives
    • Orchestration
    • Layout Fine-tuning
    • A Brief History of Music Engraving; The Art of Music Engraving (Many students find this session especially interesting)
    • Why MuseScore?
If you are interested to learn the amazing and fantastic MuseScore, find out more from us!
