What users say about D Notation


It’s actually super intuitive

Really easy to type one note after another quickly

Easy to add and delete notes without knowing much about music

This is a very nice platform for sketching out musical ideas




D Notation is supported by outstanding musicians

Film composer / Electronic pioneer. People’s Artist of Russia

For the very first time, there’s an effective app for children’s music education.


Leonid Desyatnikov


The average high-school student could easily master this tool – in fact anybody who wants to write music!


Alexander Radvilovich

Composer, Professor, St. Petersburg’s Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory

Initial reports show the app’s great potential. I am sure demand will grow rapidly.


Vladimir Ryabenko

Chief Sound director at Mariinsky theatre

Having tested the app, I clearly see:
1. Simplicity and logical completeness of music typing;
2. High typing speed;
3. Freedom from more complicated programs like Finale or Sibelius.
Just practice for two minutes––and you’ll find that writing music is just like writing a letter. I’ve no doubt there will be considerable demand for D Notation.
