About the author: Maxwell Shinn is a prolific composer from Minneapolis. He has been actively using MuseScore from 2009, and understands all of its aspects. He has composed two full-length musicals in MuseScore, as well as composing works for an orchestra, concert band, chamber ensemble, instrumental solo, and others.

MuseScore is a free and libre music notation program; suitable for everyone from music students to professionals. MuseScore makes the process easy so users can focus on the music instead of the technology.

Instant MuseScore will introduce the reader to the key features of MuseScore, and show them how to typeset very complicated scores while steering clear of some common trouble spots. The reader will start by understanding the most notable features to help them enter music into MuseScore. They will learn about topics such as entering notes, rhythms, articulations, dynamics, extracting individual parts, printing sheet music, and exporting to audio, to name but a few. Using this knowledge as a base, the book teaches readers about the additional techniques necessary for more complex projects and how to give scores a professional touch.

This is a handy resource for both professional or amateur musicians and composers who have some prior knowledge of musical terminology and want to learn to notate music digitally with MuseScore.
