Music writing software, also called a scorewriter, is a program that lets you easily create sheet music. It’s basically like Google Docs for the music you make — and then some.
It turns the frequencies and soundwaves you’ve created with an instrument or your voice into marks on a page that can then be read and played by other musicians.
Instead of writing with a pen on a piece of blank sheet music, you can quickly create, edit, move around, and print your music notations.
What is the best program to write music?
It’s difficult to say that there’s one “best” music writing software (AKA “scorewriter”) because every composer has different preferences and needs. But some of the best programs for writing music include Notion 6 (Windows / Mac / iOS), MuseScore 2 (Windows / Mac), Sibelius First (Windows / Mac), Finale PrintMusic (Windows), MagicScore Maestro 8 (Windows), and QuickScore Elite Level II (Windows / Mac).
