Now with ScanScore, it has. In seconds, ScanScore lets you scan printed and digital sheet music for playback and further processing in another program. But that’s not all. Once you’ve scanned your music, you can also make edits and corrections to the notes. And with ScanScore 2, you can even transpose them.

Who is ScanScore for?

Musicians and Choir Singers

ScanScore is the ultimate tool for musicians who write their own music, as well as those who prefer to play by ear. For practicing difficult sections, ScanScore allows you to play along at any tempo, getting those parts down once and for all.

ScanScore is also the ideal accompanist. No matter which instrument you play, scan in the sheet music and ScanScore will play the accompaniment while you practice your own part.

​Music Teachers

ScanScore is great for music teachers of any instrument, including the voice.
Using ScanScore, students are able to hear how pieces should sound, whether they’re in their lesson or at home.

ScanScore Ensemble allows you to scan up to four staves at once, making it perfect for choirs and groups.

Music Educators

ScanScore can be used for teaching music theory.

By scanning any music exercise, students are able to check the rhythm and pitch as they study.

With the easy-to-use note editing and key change features, ScanScore is also helpful for key-changing practice and transposing exercises.

Your product is incredible, and I plan to use it for my singing chorus. Have many projects already lined up! My director loves to take original scores and modify them. This product is going to allow us to make changes very quickly. 

Kevin W.

Choir singer

The new ScanScore engine rocks so much more than the previous version. I can scan my sheet music in with my phone and play it back before I begin practising. It's a game changer. Props to your team!

Rachelle G.

hobby musician

ScanScore does an excellent job, is easy-to-use and affordable. The program even recognizes more complex partitures, and the text recognition is among the best I have seen!

George F.

Composer and musician

I use ScanScore to practice piano notes with my son. Your program is fantastic. It saves me a lot of time because I don't have to type in the notes myself. And if the notes are too difficult, I transpose them into a simpler key.
