Standards- Music Notation Software

MagArt Productions is centered around the utilization and the extensive capabilities of Finale notation software. Scott Maggart, the founder of MagArt Productions, has multiple years of experience working with this software and has mastered the intricacies of its tools and possesses a comprehensive understanding of its capabilities, providing the ability to notate the most complicated of musical situations.

Sibelius notation software- Equally as powerful as Finale. We have recently incorporated Sibelius into our offering for our clients that prefer to have their music engraved in this file format. Though Finale maintains to be our default music notation program, we are very excited about the capabilities of the recent release of Sibelius.

Standards- Music Engraving (Notation)

MagArt Productions maintains a constant study through literature, research, seminars, and discussions of the most current music notation and engraving standards as set forth by the international music notation community. We put these standards into practice as a baseline for each project to assure that each individual note to the total page layout to the total score layout is well conceived, readable, and precise. we work each project through an ongoing series of proof reads, edits and modifications - always looking at it through the user's eyes. As a note, Finale and Sibelius have developed over the years very solid default presentation capabilities, doing an excellent job in initial set up and formatting of the music. But as professional music engravers we do not rely on the software alone to create our finished product. As some music engravers will claim, the creation of quality notated music is an art form where clarity, spacing, style, readability, and other subtleties are key to its success in the published and performance world.

Client Standards- As we realize and respect, many composers, producers, and publishers have a set of music engraving and formatting standards that they will want to incorporate into their projects. MagArt Productions is centered around client satisfaction and will work hand in hand with our clients on these specifications to assure that the final product meets their 100% expectations.
