PlayScore understands most types of score published within the last 150 years, and we are constantly widening PlayScore’s coverage. Types currently not supported are:

  • Handwritten music and printed music designed to look handwritten,  This includes jazz fonts such as those found in Real Books
  • Shape notes, color notes and other novelty music formats

  • Some types of hymnal.  Hymns are sometimes found in special styles not otherwise found in music, and some publications may not scan well. Fortunately a wide range of hymns in modern editions are readily available from online sources, many of them free.  See Finding hymn sheet music below
