Compose and share music scores

Noteflight is a full-featured music application with social elements developed by Noteflight LLC. It allows you to write, playback as well as share music notation on the world wide web. It also enables you to compose scores using the provided simple editing tools, save your pieces, find work by others, and get inspired.

Composition on the move

Noteflight is a stripped back score creation app, perfect for on-the-go jotting down. Its interface allows you to do scores that will be recorded through a virtual keyboard or by using traditional sheet music. You can then save, edit, playback, and share these compositions. This simple web-app contains basic social media aspects, allowing you to share your work, and, at the same time, see other aspiring composers work too. 

All of the works seen in this program can be commented on, favorited, or ranked. Artists with the same taste in music and sound can even connect, share works, and discuss music with each other. The simplicity and straightforwardness of Noteflight make it a great way to note simple and single instrument scores

However, its lack of advanced music editing tools also causes it to be difficult and unyielding for longer or larger pieces. The free version of this music app already consists of most of the necessary features. Still, a paid version is provided for you to avail of extra space for your scores and has more advanced music editing tools.

Functions better in digital note-taking

Noteflight is an interesting combination of musical score software and social media. However, to be frank, it is not actually suitable for serious composition. It only fits nicely into a composer's toolbox as a kind of informal notebook and discussion forum.

People often commend the app’s simpleness. However, for the commercial standard of this program, its simplicity goes a little overboard. For instance, if you want to add VST plugins, it's almost impossible as things like writing up a score for an orchestra make the performance of your browser or device go slow. If you will be working with heavy instrumentation, it's going to be difficult to work with

Furthermore, this software is obviously showing that it is not for those who want to learn musical scores or nations as its interface is more focused on people who actually know how to write and read music. Beginner in this software will find all the options confusing, and at some point, the toolbar as tiresome.

Handy to use for writing composition

Noteflight is a must-have handy music composition tool for you if you only aim to have a software wherein you can write your sheet music on the fly as it can be used anytime and anywhere. But, for more advanced and professional music composition, it best to find another alternative that will suffice all your music tool and quality needs,


  • Functions well as a digital note taker
  • Access anytime and anywhere
  • Share and discuss composition works with others
  • Note simple and single instrument scores.


  • No capability to do more serious and professional compositions
  • Too simple for commercial standard
  • Difficulty working with heavy instrumentation
