Forget about handwriting and complicated software

To get printed sheet music, you have to spend weeks of mastering notation software with a computer mouse, qwerty, and midi keyboard or hire someone skilled like a copyist, who gets the typing job done for you. What nonsense! Now you can type notes as easy as you text.

Focus on WHAT you type, NOT HOW

Don't let you be distracted from your thoughts. Concentration is crucial in the creative process and learning. Now you'll never be puzzled about how to enter a particular musical symbol.

Feel the joy of digital note typing

Enjoy the typing process. Music is beautiful, and we should enjoy every moment of interacting with it.
