Young Composers Group

A group for composers under the age of 18. We can learn from parents, teachers, and other adults, but we can also learn from our peers!


I wish the musescore would play the trill instead of ignore it. I have a way to simulate trils in the meantime though, just slurr a bunch of 16th notes

Or 32nd notes. Though it doesn't sound near as good as a real trill does.

MuseScore ignores just about all articulations. This includes accents, staccato, marcato, fermata, crescendo, decrescendo, trill, slur, and many more. Although, one can download a plugin to create crescendo and decrescendo, but I certainly don't trust it.

musescore actually does play slur, but it just plays the notes that are slurred more closely together.

Hmm...I stand corrected.

and it does play staccato notes and a chord in glissando.

And it uses a slight accent when placed.

fermata: you cant expect it to know how long you want the note
de/crescendo: not all crescendos are played the same, some start slow and then speed up, some are more even
Articulations: it does use them

if you aren't getting the articulations, make sure you have the latest musescore
