  5. What do users say about MuseScore MuseScore Joseph Pisano blogs “This program could not have “emerged” at a better time as musicians and educators are clammering for a new alternative for their ”simple” music notation needs at no cost. ” Musikai posts “ What I like especially is the fantastic visual output. […] Comparing Lilypond output with Musescore's I find very little differences. ” Cyvros tweets “ One of the reasons I started using MuseScore was its similarity to Sibelius. Finale and other notation apps just do my head in. ” http://musescore.org
