Publish to musescore.com

    Overview

    Scores can be saved online using a free or subscription account with Musescore.com. This allows you to access your scores from anywhere; you also have the option of whether to keep them private or allow them to be shared. You can choose to save scores only online, or publish any of your locally saved files online.

    When saving online Musescore creates an MP3 file of the audio of your score which may take a long time. To modify this behaviour see Managing publishing preferences .
