MusicXML (EXtensible Markup Language) is a standard Open XML-based file format for representing Western Music Notation. It was designed for sharing Sheet Music files between different Music Notation Software programs and for archiving Sheet Music Files for use in the future.
As of October 2020, MusicXML is supported to varying degrees by over 250 Music Notation programs:
- Most scorewriting or Music Notation programs, including Sibelius, Finale, Dorico and MuseScore.
- Most Music OCR (Optical Character Recognition) programs, including SmartScore, PhotoScore and Audiveris.
- Most Music Sequencer programs or DAW's (Digital Audio Workstation), including Cubase, Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Digital Performer and SONAR.
Before MusicXML, the only music notation interchange format commonly supported was MIDI. MIDI is a wonderful format for performance applications like Sequencers, but it is not so wonderful for other applications like Music Notation. MIDI does not know the difference between an F-sharp and a G-flat; it does not represent Note Stem direction, Note Beams, Repeats, Slurs, Bar Line, Measures and many other aspects of notation.

PASSION & EXPERIENCE
"MUSIC is the only Universal Language that every Person, Animal and Plant can Understand, Appreciate and Enjoy!"
David ... at the Cottage
Our Love of Music began as children taking Music Lessons as we approached that mandatory Kindergarten School age. Jam Sessions started around 12 years of age in Basement Bands that led to further pursuit of Music of all Styles at University. Jamming, Performing, Composing and Recording leaves a Legacy of Passion that carries forward to be shared by ALL through Technology!
