Download MuseScore Standard Songs

• Oct 5, 2021 - 21:31

I'm a regular MuseScore user for my original songs. I'd like to download standards in MuseScore so I can transpose the key if necessary. How do I do this? Does my current membership allow me to do this or do I need to do something else? Thanks, Sue


I'd like to clarify. is where you download songs, so if you are having trouble with that, you need to go over there to that site to ask for help.

But once you've downloaded them, if you have trouble actually working them in MuseScore - the free music notation software for Windows, macOS, and Linux - then that is something we can certainly help you with here on We'd just need you to attach the score you downloaded and then to describe in more detail the problem you're having working with it in MuseScore.

Dear Marc, Thanks for writing. I know that is where I download songs. My purpose is to download songs in Musescore so that I can transpose, add parody lyrics, and make minor changes for performance. Some songs do download in MuseScore ("I'm In the Mood for Love") Some songs do not download in MuseScore ("I Can't Give You Anything but Love") and I get an error message.
I can print out the version (wrong key) but I cannot open it in MuseScore to make it flexible. Thanks, Sue.

I see, that score crashes MuseScore (3.6.2, on Windows 10)

when calculationg the direction of a tie

It had been written (or rather: last saved) with MuseScore 2.0.2 and does open cleanly with 2.3.2.
That shows the possible culprit tie (leading into nothing):

Deleting that tie and it loads in MuseScore 3(.6.2) without a crash
