Easy enough for kids, deep enough for me. Still discovering features. It’s one of these apps you didn’t know you needed, but then use and wonder how you got along without it. Music in my head all day can now be saved and shared. Can’t wait to see what my students think. Thank you app people!

Simple and Handy

I just checked out the app and it is very interesting and useful. I already have Sibelius but it’s so complicated that I rarely use it. Thanks heaps for making SketchMusic so simple and easy to use. It will come in very handy.

Awesome App!

Really intuitive and super easy to use for beginner musicians and pros! You can really easily jot down melodies or digitize complicated songs straight from your phone.
Really great!
