Is it possible to download music on here without paying money?

• Mar 13, 2020 - 01:52

Anytime I try and download a piece of music it always forces me to upgrade my account to a pro account I don't know if there is some way to get out of that screen to download it or I have to pay money to download it, and then print it.

You ask:
Is it possible to download music on here without paying money?

This forum here is musescore.org. (Check the address in your web browser.)
Any file attached to a post here can be downloaded without paying money.
For example:
Happy Birthday.mscz
(You never know what to expect here, as musescore.org caters to the free MuseScore editor software (i.e., the desktop - not mobile - app).

There also exists another website - musescore.com
Have a look here for an explanation of the difference:
https://musescore.org/en/node/277874

So...
On musescore.com -- original and public domain (PD) scores are available for download free of charge.
Here's a PD example:
https://musescore.com/james_brigham/scores/1494541
Also...
On musescore.com -- music protected by copyright is downloadable by obtaining a paid Pro subscription.

If you use the "search for scores" field at the top, then indeed you'll be directed towards the .com sister site, as that is the online score sharing platform.

If you're logged in into your free account you can download all scores that are public domain (and correctly labeled as such) and all original score from users that have chosen to make them available for free.

Then contact support@musescore.com.
I've just visited that link without being logged in (using a private browsing window). Clicking the download button opens a popup with file formats to choose from.
I clicked on "MuseScore mscz" and was asked to log in or create a free account. Logging in with my free account (https://musescore.com/user/32983039) immediately started the download. No questions about Pro being asked.

You need an account to download anything on the score-sharing musescore.com, but a free account suffices for most scores. Only ones that are copyrighted protected require a paid account. So if you're logged in with a free account but are seeing that message, that's your answer right there - this is song under copyright protection.

For further questions about the score-sharing website musescore.com, best to ask over there on that site.
