    • Only had MuseScore for few days but it seems like a very solid and powerful program. Nothing cheap about it.,,,and it's free. Guest • Aug 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • MuseScore is a very capable alternative to Finale. It is easy to use and produces professional sheet music of any size. I have created small scores for a single-instrument, as well as large scores for a full concert band using this software. Finale does have a better sound library than MuseScore, but other than that, MuseScore has handled anything that I have thrown at it. Guest • 14 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • It does not work properly and is much less than similar to Finale. Guest • Jan 2018 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
