About the Music Notation Project Wiki

The Music Notation Project fosters communication, cooperation, and the exchange of ideas and resources among those interested in alternative music notation systems and similar subjects. As a companion to our Forum (Google group) and main website, this wiki is part of that effort. (What is a wiki?)

The wiki’s content is generated by the members of our community — alternative music notation enthusiasts who support the project and share its goals. It provides a platform for our community’s knowledge, ideas, proposals, examples, images, and sheet music for alternative notation systems — material that has typically been shared through our Forum (Google group). Organizing this material in a wiki will help make it more accessible and useful.

While our main website contains carefully edited tutorials and focused presentations of notation systems, the wiki supplements it by providing a way for our community to contribute additional information and ideas on these same topics, and on a broader range of topics that are still relevant to alternative music notation. It also provides a place to begin to collect and share examples of sheet music in alternative notation systems.
