Finale PrintMusic is music notation software designed for educators, worship directors, performing musicians, composers and arrangers who don’t require the most advanced features in Finale.

PrintMusic is easy to use and fun to learn. Quickly create orchestrations of up to 24 staves, extract parts, hear your music play back, and print beautiful sheet music.

What’s New


 ScoreManager gives you instant access to how your staves look and playback.

New Interface

We’ve added an updated, modern look to PrintMusic’s mixer, playback controls, and palettes (which now lock on Macs, too).

Automatic Range Check

See instant feedback when you write out of the range of beginner, intermediate, or advanced players.

Mid-Measure Clefs

Need a clef change in the middle of a measure? PrintMusic can do it!

Notation Improvements

Enjoy improved default treatment of rests and accidentals when music is placed in multiple layers.

Hide/Show Empty Staves.

Hide/Show Empty Staves helps you maximize the amount of music that will fit on the page.

Beat-Assigned Shapes

Smart Shapes, including hairpins and trills, automatically attach to a desired “beat,” and snap into place.

New File Format

A new file format lets you share music as Finale 2014 and 2012 files and offers more flexibility tomorrow.

Updated Mac OS X Support

Mac OS X modernization benefits include full screen mode, pinch zoom, drag-scrolling, text entry via voice dictation, basic Retina support, and more.
