File (Required): Select "Choose File" to select and upload the file.

File Type (Required):  Select if the file is normal or compressed MusicXML and the version number.  (If the version is unknown, it's likely 2.)  If attaching a .zip file, select what files are in the archive.

Press "Save" at the top or bottom of the page.  That's it!  Your score is published automatically.


Other Notes:

If you find a composer, or instrumentation option missing that you need, please make a request in the forum and an administrator will add it ASAP.

If you find an error in a score, please fix it, upload a new XML file and comment about your actions on the score's page.  If you are unable to do so, please at least comment about the error so another member can make the adjustment.  Older versions of an XML file that contains errors can then be deleted by an administrator.
