Using The ForScore App To Edit And Manage Digital Music Scores In Rehearsal And Performance

Course Overview

Collaborative music production and performances always involve fluid processes, constantly needing annotation, editing, and management of draft documents. ForScore is an application which affords on-the-spot annotation on musical scores, and organises file management. With such an application, musicians are able to play directly from their latest drafts, easily retrieving the right versions, referencing older drafts if necessary.

Using the ForScore app to edit and manage digital music scores in rehearsal and performance enables learners to come up with their best strategies to use this software application in their own contexts.
