We have some exciting news as we transition to new ownership this year. You can read the full details by clicking here.
Notation Software is a privately held company founded in 1994 by Mark Walsen, a software professional (for 35 years) with a passion for music (for 50 years). Notation Software is located in Bellevue, Washington (in the Pacific Northwest of the United States), a center for technology and the arts.
Our Mission: To aid everyday musicians in their enjoyment, performance and creation of music.
Notation Software is highly focused on supporting everyday musicians with notation-based software. What differentiates Notation Software's products from competitive products is not a list of dozens or hundreds of features. Rather, Notation Software's products are different from competitive products based simply on who our products are for: everyday musicians.
Notation Software's priorities are based on our customers. When we are weighing a decision whether to add an advanced notation feature for avant garde composers, versus simplifying basic tasks to make the software more pleasurable and easy-to-use for everyday musicians, it's a very easy decision: we put our effort into supporting the everyday musician!
Our focus on the everyday musician is reflected not only in the accessibility of our products but also the accessibility of our support and a community of everyday musicians. Notation Software's excellent support extends beyond answering technical questions about the use of our products. Like our customers, we are also everyday musicians. We join in with everyday musicians in our forum, who warmly encourage each other in their music making efforts.
