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!

Composer and musician

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

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.
