"Jody, Yes I have downloaded Musescore, but it doesn't seem to want to accept .mus files from Encore (yet).  I think there might be a way, just haven't found it.. I don't want to lose sight of the 100s of .mus files in my system.…"

Encore, MusicTime and Passport music

I have been using MusicTime notation program for decades, and changed to Encore a few years ago.  Both have served me well.  However a glitch in Encore drove me to Passport Music support (who are the most recent publishers).  There is no response…See More

Walk Around - Dante Flores

"Well done, Dante! I also appreciated the piano work. Very good accompanist and very complementary to your performance...that is sadly rare these days. I hope we hear more from you. Perhaps some banjo duets with Mr. Aaron?"
