So, you want to help develop and improve MuseScore? Welcome to a passionate and dedicated team of volunteers from around the world.

This is how it generally works:

  1. If you see an area that could benefit from improvement, then jump right in!
  • There are a number of issues that have been identified as a good entry point for beginners here.
  • If you become unsure, ask questions.
  • If you are about to make a significant, or potentially controversial change, discuss it beforehand.
  • Share your improvements early and openly. That way, people can let you know if you're on the right track.
