simple music notation system

 2. Most people have problems in     learning and playing music in the classical notation because of musical   notes dyslexia . 
3. Thats why many ( young ) people who are very interested in making music and start with music at home or on a musical school, often stop after a few weeks because learning of the classical notation is to hard for them and it takes to long before they  really can make music on f.i on a piano. So they give up and thtas a pity
4. A few years a go when i retired i  started  in trying to learn and making  music on a piano in the classical notation.
5. I can now ( after a lot of hard  study) read the classic music notation although it is still very difficult for me and i have to read every note one by one.
6. But I still arent ablle to read and  play it on my piano the same time
7. Then i got knowledge of the klavarscribo  notation systeem
8. see youtube

10. or

https://www.klavarvereniging.nl
12. You only have to register to get  acces to a lot of translated klavarscribo music and lessons
13. Here you can download piano lessons  in klavarscribo and a lot of klavarscribo music
14. It is a very easy to learn music notation  and one can make and read ( simple) music on a piano within a few houres music.
15. I am very very enthousiastic about  klavar because  i am convinced and  this would help a lot of people to play the piano or organ.

16. I also started translating music   from classical notation to Klavar notation on my computer
17. I translate music notated in the  classical way :
18. -by first importing a pdf into  musescore
19. -and correct then all the reading  and importing mistakes note by note in musescore so that i have a clean and  clear musescore.msz file
20. -Then a do an export to a musicxml     file
21. -This file I import into     klavarscript , a tiny klavar notation software program.
22. This superb little program , made in  the past by one person ( Marco van de Kolk) isnt supported any more by him.
23. Also it takes a lot of work because  importing a  xml file into klavarscribo gives mostly a corrupted file so you  have to check and correct many things in klavarscribo

24. I wonder if it is possible:
- to use the musescore software.
- to write/make a perfect and clean musescore  file
- Convert this musescore  directly into a PDF with the Klavarscribo page vieuw.
25. I ask this because there is a great  communty of programming experts on the musescore website.
26. If you need further information and are interested please dont   hesitate to contact me.
27. with kind regards,

musescore college

wouldnt it be nice if musescore had a group devoted to educating members on music theory, arranging, orchestration...
yeah, I know that some high school classes use musescore for teaching music but that isnt exactly what I mean here. I mean a place totally here at musescore where members could make intelligent critical educated helpful comments about music.
there are certainly members who are very well educated in music who could help members out with their music, exchange helpful comments, a place where people could actually learn about music rather than the hit or miss experimentation alot of us do. I know I am just talking into the wind, but still, sigh.....oh well.....

who is chinadoll?

Some folks have wanted to know, "who is chinadoll?" These one or two folks are musescore members with an abundance of free time and curiosity about trivial issues that have nothing to do with music composition. That said (written), let us (me, this is confusing) be clear, they are very nice people and chinadoll is deeply touched (in the head, most likely) by their interest. So here goes.
  
Chinadoll has beautiful glossy golden brown hair, large soft eyes, a very quiet shy disposition along with an exceptionally sweet and gentle nature. Chinadoll loves loves fresh fruit (especially bananas) and vegetables. Yes, chinadoll is a Syrian Hamster with a bit of a talent for composing music. Late at night when everyone is asleep, chinadoll will tap out the notes on the home computer using her little paws. She loves attention and lots of gentle petting (especially if you give her a treat).

MDL + More

In addition to MDL, I think many could agree that MuseScore also needs MFE (MuseScore Front Ensemble), to work in conjuction with MFE as a soundfont. I understand it is hard to get nice sounds on an open-source software, but it would be nice to have. Here are suggestions for the soundfont in mind:

UPDATED SOUNDS
- Marimba (with 3 hardnesses); the marimba sounds a little bit like a toy xylophone with a deeper voice. It doesn't sound very rich.
- Vibraphone (with 3 hardnesses); the vibes don't exactly sound metallic enough
- Xylophone (with 2/3 hardnesses)
- Glockenspiel (with 2 hardnesses)
- Chimes/Tubular bells (with 2 hardnesses); the chime sound isn't round enough and is a bit abrasive in timbre

NEW SOUNDS
- Crotales
- Gong (PLEASE)
- Suspended/China cymbals with pre-recorded rolls and hits on different sizes (similar to what VDL does)

And as well, a nice function that could be EXTREMELY useful is the ability to upload samples into a score by mp3 or wav.
