Intro to Notation Software
Saturday, October 17th @ 2pm, followed by a Zoom Q&A
What is this video tutorial session about?
In this workshop we’ll be learning about the different notation software currently on the market, what you can do with one, and then cover some basics in using MuseScore, a free program available for download. Get the ideas in your head onto ‘paper’ and be able to hear back and make changes in real-time. In the span of approx. 10min, we’ll re-create an 8 bar handbell work whilst also learning score set-up, basic input techniques of notes and articulations, handbell specific notation, and some helpful resources of where to go when you run into trouble using the software.
Brittany McCorriston has been playing handbells for over ten years and is working towards a Bachelors of Music in Contemporary Writing and Production from Berklee College of Music. Brittany specializes in music notation and editing and is currently an assistant editor for Berklee Press where she has worked on over 15 different publications.
