ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of music notation software (MNS). Sibelius and Finale are among the music notation software used. According to a 2005 survey of New Zealand composers, 82 percent of composers use such music notation software. The disadvantages of using the software include work filled with rhythm inaccuracies, misspelled accidentals and wrong placement of notational elements. It states that compositional innovation can flourish with the mix of traditional theoretical skill and MNS tools.
