Music Notation Software For Linux

Filed under
Linux

When I was an untutored rock musician, I envied my colleagues who could read and write music notation. They could access and study material that literally was a closed book to me. So, at one point in my musical life, I dedicated myself to mastering the basics of notation. I've never regretted the effort I put into that study. I now advise my serious students that their careers in music will be considerably more flexible and lucrative if they devote time to mastering the conventions of standard Western music notation.

Linux-based musicians will be pleased to discover that their favorite OS supports some excellent music notation packages. As an heir to the UNIX tradition of high-quality printing, particularly TeX-based printing, Linux can lay claim to some of the most powerful notation software available for any platform. This is a bold statement to be sure, so over the next few months this column will present a series of profiles of some of the best Linux music notation software. I hope you enjoy this survey.
