Thank you for your donations

MuseScore.org started as a very basic community website a little more than one year ago. Today it's the home of the rapidly growing MuseScore user and developer community, attracting around 2000 unique visitors per day and serving around 300.000 pageviews on monthly basis. Needless to say this is quite a success, even more when considering this is all accomplished by volunteer work. This success comes however with a price tag, because musescore.org quickly outgrew its simple hosting facility. Thankfully, we have received many donations which make it possible to keep musescore.org up and running on better hardware. So thank you all for your donations!Read more

Today, the very first step of the MuseScore redesign will be presented: the new MuseScore wordmark.Read more
