• Feb 26, 2014 - 09:35

MuseScore is part again of Google Summer of Code 2014 (GSoC)! If you are a student and you have aspirations to help improve the open source MuseScore notation software during the summertime, this is an unique opportunity to work together with the MuseScore developers and getting paid for it. Learn all about GSoC and how to apply for it.

If you are considering applying, we have a list of ideas you can choose from. You can also apply with your own idea. Don’t hesitate to contact the potential mentors from the ideas list or contact us via IRC (#musescore on, via the developer mailing list or by leaving a comment on this post.

Don’t let you scare off by the knowledge prerequisites; you don’t need to be an expert, and there is some time for learning within the GSoC period. However, familiarity with Qt/C++ and interest in music and music notation will be helpful. If you are still doubting, read Am I good Enough?


GSoC 2014 is officially open for students project proposals. The submission period runs until 21 March 19:00 UTC. If you want to participate you need to submit your proposal before this date. The submission process is done on

There is an application template there. You can also find it here. A good guide to write your proposal is available on FLOSS manuals.

We look forward to read your application!
