Piano: display "count" below each note

• Aug 8, 2019 - 21:37

I have a new piano student who is learning to count. I created a simple (one staff) melody in 4/4 and would like MuseScore to display the count\beats associated with each note, below the note. For example, display "1 & a 2 3 4; 1 2 3 4", etc, below the appropriate note. How can this be done in MuseScore 3?



MuseScore doesn't have a count displayer, but using the "Staff Text" tool, ctrl-T (cmd-T Mac), you can put any number of texts you want above or below any note or rest, and move them around with the mouse.

Another possibility is to use chord symbols, which have a special shortcut ";" to move to the next beat, also Ctrl+4 to move by eighth note, Ctrl+3 to move by sixteenth, etc. That allowing the element to be placed directly on the right beat. Unfortunately, it seems the "&" won't be interpreted correct. I think when my new RNA and Nashville notate features appear - hopefully with 3.3 - either of those would work better.
