Why use music notation software?

Using notation software, also called scoring or scorewriting software, speeds up the process of writing music and getting it performed and published. It enables musicians to compose, arrange or just write out music, and produce printouts and audio files to play, or publish online. Professional engravers, copyists and publishers use it to produce scores for publication and performance. Notation software also helps students learn and use the
complex language of music notation.
