Music Notation and Publishing - CMPN2320

Year - 2020

Music Notation and Publishing builds student capacity to notate music at a professional industry standard. Through study of published scores and text books on music notation, students learn what the standards of music notation are, and how to approach complex or difficult notation problems. Students gain experience in all of the main professional notation software titles with experts in their use, with the aim to develop workflows that will save thousands of hours over their careers. A series of short challenges develops skills in key areas of music publishing, such as the preparation of scores and parts, piano reductions, film score standards, and much more. The final assessment project allows the class to work as a professional music preparation service, engraving a first edition of an important Australian work as a team.
