This Archive is for my Students and Friends
This NEW ARCHIVE will be under construction for some time (2020).
In my lessons and for preparing recording sessions I am using FINALE MUSIC Notation Software (creates files with *.mus file extension). Finale lets you write, play and print sheet music. You can compose your own songs, arrange instrumentation and play your songs back, print them out or export them as PDF, XML, Midi or Mp3 files. I think that is AMAZING, that a computer can play sheet music, that you can write your own songs and listen to it, email it as a PDF, MP3 or MIDI-file to a friend and/or print it out and if you find a better tone, change it later too perfection, isn't that AMAZING !?!?
I recommend to start with the FREE Finale NotePad ® ,which has limited editing options but lets you view, play and print my sheet music. If you feel comfortable using this notation software, please upgrade to Finale Print Music which gives you much more control over the editing process and export possibilities, and is a fast & easy way to create and print professional-quality sheet music.
File extensions and related software:
*.pdf opens with ADOBE; ideal for printing.
*.mus opens with FINALE MUSIC; ideal for editing sheet music.
*.xml opens with FINALE MUSIC, MUSESCORE and other Notation software (inter-changeable crossover format for sheet music, but introduces mistakes and distortions).
*.mcsz opens with MUSESCORE ; ideal for editing sheet music.
*.midi can be played by most computers and translated into sheet music by FINALE MUSIC and MUSESCORE
*.mp3 can be played by most computers, but can not be translated to sheet music.
