Topic of the day: scary meters! In honor of Halloween, I am going to enter an excerpt from some music I wrote many years ago to accompany a poem entitled "Goblin Market" by Christina Rossetti. The basic groove is alternating measures of 4 and 3.5, except for one instrument that is in straight 15. Is MuseScore up to the challenge? Am I? Tune in to find out!

Mastering MuseScore: Complete Online Course

 
After many months of work, I am thrilled to launch my newest resource: Mastering MuseScore: Complete Online Course.  With more than nine hours of video instruction divided into over one hundred lessons, this is the most comprehensive training on MuseScore you will find anywhere.  The course follows the general outline of my acclaimed guide Mastering MuseScore, but the cost of the course is less than that of the physical book, making it an incredible value as well!

I am announcing this launch here in order to give my followers a chance to enroll now and take advantage of the early-bird pricing option, which I am extending for just a few more days.  Next week I will start promoting the course more widely, and the early-bird pricing will fly away :-).

If you are an educator or school administrator, I encourage you to consider becoming a MuseScore Educational Partner
and sponsoring enrollments for your entire institution at a hugely discounted rate (we're talking about as little as a dollar per student)!

MuseScore Cafe

For those who are not aware, I have been doing a weekly series of free streaming video sessions called the "MuseScore Cafe" where I talk about and/or demonstrate some aspect of MuseScore.  You can watch live and participate in the chat, or just catch the archived video: https://masteringmusescore.com/go/cafe/

The sessions have mostly been on Wednesdays but at a variety of different start times.  I am aiming to become more consistent, and this month at least all sessions will be 12:30 PM Eastern time (US), or 4:30 GMT.

So, as I type this, next session starts in under an hour!

Today's topic: multiple voices, or how to work with different rhythms on the same staff. https://youtu.be/5mc-KrX4f_w

Exporting score to ABC notation?

(Hopefully this is a good place to ask the question. I'm overwhelmed by the sheer number of discussion groups!)

As a first test of using MuseScore, I imported an ABC notation file from my archive and tranposed it to a new key. That worked perfectly. But now, i want to export it back to ABC. So far, I haven't found any way to do that. 
Can someone give me a hint on how to proceed? Or point me at a better place to ask the question?

Thanks,
Thom

Enharmonic spelling

 I have generated a chord sequence to practice sight-reading and I want to produce it in all keys. My problem is that I have always thought of the key between C and D as C#, yet when I load the C# sequence (from midi, which does not have key signatures) into MuseScore, MuseScore writes it as Db. I tried dropping the C# signature onto the score, which works beautifully for other keys, but when I do, it shows all sorts of naturals and flats. How can I get it to recognize and write the score as C#. (Actually, the same thing happens with F# and Gb.)  I know I should learn Db and Gb, but I just want to see them as sharp keys, not flat.

Doubles and Trebles

Hi All, newby here,
    I am trying to write a nocturne from John Field, I have the piano part and using muescore 2 I am writing the Melody line to play on my flute. I'm not sure of the number of the Nocturne but it's annotated "Cantabile assai lento".
At bar 18 there are the beginning of lots for dotted doubles and trebles, but when I put them into the music they join!, so I end up with a thumping big run with 2s and 3s written above it, also when bar 18 starts there is a quaver then a dotted double but as soon as I add the double it joins with the quaver. What am I doing wrong?

How does one unhide scores?

I save some of my MuseScore files online but make them private so I could access them while I'm on my phone, but I realized that doing so made my public scores hidden. I tried to fix this problem by just re-uploading the score as a different one. Is there another way to make my hidden scores public again or do I just re-upload them?
