Using MusEdit for... Teaching Music

    "I teach guitar full time with over 90 students a week, and have all my lessons scored with MusEdit. I have a computer and laser printer in my studio so I can print a lesson in seconds and spend more time showing the student how to play. Iím running MusEdit 8 hours a day, 6 days a week in my studio. MusEdit by far makes the Best looking tab and is easier to use than any other program Iíve tried" - Ron Decker

Use MusEdit to create professional-looking lessons and exercises

    Prepare great looking lessons and print them out whenever you need a copy.  The flexibility to mix text and music makes it easy to create lessons for any instrument, and in any style you want.  Give your students printed lessons and/or give them to your students electronically.  Using the free MusEdit Viewer your students can print out and play back lessons, exercises and musical selections.  

    MusEdit also makes it easy to run a music teaching web site, where you can post your lessons as images and/or downloadable files.

MusEdit Implements Ad-Tab Fingering Symbols:

   Standard tablature indicates which fret and string should be used to play notes, but it does not provide any information about which finger on the fretting hand should be used to play the notes.  Ad-Tab (ďAdvanced-TabĒ) is a system for enhancing standard tablature to show this fingering information in an easy to see manner, as in this example:  

This system of symbols is useful for beginning students - it shows them how to fret the notes, and it also makes the score fun to look at!  Click here for more details about Ad-Tab in MusEdit.

Free MusEdit Viewer - for students who don't own MusEdit...

    Because MusEdit comes with a free Viewer, teachers can prepare their lessons in MusEdit format and give them to students to view, print out and playback - even if the  students don't have their own copy of MusEdit:
