Music Musescore

MuseScore is a free cross platform WYSIWYG music notation program, licenced under GNU GPL.

There are times when it is very useful to be able to create musical scores.

These include sending compositions to other musicians or as part of school work. Musescore can be used to record, edit and print MIDI music from a keyboard or other compatible instrument.

MIDI music is very versatile because the notes can be edited and used to produce musical notation as well as the audio. Musescore is a comprehensive editor for producing music in this way.

Some highlights:

  • WYSIWYG, notes are entered on a “virtual note sheet”
  • Unlimited number of staves
  • Up to four voices per staff

Geography Music BBC bbcws

Listen to sounds and audio from around the world. As part of the BBC World Service, this unique map allows users to upload sounds and audio from all over the globe. Could be useful for providing an alternative to text and images. Useful as a whole class resource via an IWB, and could also be useful to students creating project work based on other parts of the world, by adding links to sounds and audio made in the region they are studying about:

Music iCT@C BETT2010_glossy MSM

Written in-conjunction with Mortimer Rhind-Tutt, Senior Music School Master at Millfield School in Somerset, the system has been written by Music Master Specialists with a passion for music.

The philosophy behind the development of the MSM system has been the same as that for all CJM software: usability and flexibility, and always tested at the sharp end, in school.

This is not just an administration system, but also, an active management system for every aspect of a music school. It provides relevant information for teachers and music administrators alike in the format that they want and need to see it.

MSM1

With key members of the development team having direct experience of running a music department, this has directly influenced the design of the system to ensure that it covers all the key areas that a Music School Master would need to run a Music Department and much, much more.

Whilst we can describe the system in some detail, the ease of use and the flexibility only really becomes apparent when you have a look at the system.

Call us now on (01452) 857991 to arrange a full demonstration or contact us for more details through the contacts page of the web site.

Music mt Ricci Adams first envisioned Musictheory.net during his senior year of high school. Soon afterwards, he created his first lesson: The Staff, Clefs, and Ledger Lines. The Interval Ear Trainer was developed a few weeks later and the site officially launched on January 1, 2000. Since that date, he has authored over thirty new lessons and several new trainers.

This is a great site for any musician (students and teachers). Plenty of excellent activities which are interactive and engaging to use.
