How to use this app

  1. Choose a score freely. You can use anything you have access to in an ‘encoded’ format (midi, musicxml, Sibelius, Finale, etc.). If you don’t have a particular score in mind, then here are 500 lieder to choose from. Use the dropdown list to download your chosen score:
  2. Annotate the score with your analysis, following the instructions here.
  3. Upload your score in the compressed musicxml format (.mxl). All music notation software packages export to this format, (usually in the same place that they offer export to pdf).
  4. The system will evaluate your work and provide a new score, with the analysis included on it along with feedback.
  5. Corrected any errors you find and re-upload as many times as you like.
