MagicScore is a music notation software. Compose, print, arrange, and convert notation to audio with MagicScore. Use it to write sheet music, guitar tabs and chord charts.

MagicScore is the smart choice for musicians, composers, arrangers, teachers, students, choirs, ensembles, and songwriters. Included in this new line of notation software are MagicScore Maestro, MagicScore Guitar, MagicScore Notation for MS Word, MagicScore OneTouch Composer, and MagicScore School.

With MagicScore Maestro you can create clean, engraver quality prints of your music. MagicScore Maestro is music notation software with extended editing capabilities. It features a variety of input methods – virtual keyboard, external MIDI devices, or an extended set of musical symbols. MagicScore Guitar offers everything you need as a guitar player for composing, arranging, creating guitar tabs, and practicing.

MagicScore Notation for MS Word combines all of the power and features of the MagicScore Maestro software with the convenience of being able to place music notation into any MS Word document with a single mouse click. With most music notation programs in order to place a score into a word processing document the user must paste an image of the score into it. Once it is there the notes cannot be changed without deleting it and starting over. MagicScore Notation for MS Word solves this problem by allowing you to edit the notes on the page simply by clicking on them from within the word processor itself.

MagicScore OneTouch Composer is music composition and music notation software for Windows tablets. The program includes many of the features found in MagicScore Maestro. MagicScore OneTouch Composer allows musicians to compose and arrange music on their Windows tablet.

MagicScore School is a special academic edition of the MagicScore music composition and notation software for students, teachers, and schools.
