2 Beamed 8th Notes created with Adobe Sonata - Copyright © 2008 Shirley Kaiser, SKDesigns and sx-science.cn. All rights reserved. Designed by Cleo Huggins in 1985 for Adobe, Adobe Sonata has been justifiably one of the most popular music notation fonts available. Consists of 170 music notation symbols “for use in music publishing, with appropriate music setting software applications, to produce printed music.” Editor note: Adobe Sonata is my longtime favorite music notation font that I've used for design projects with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Classic styling that is also used by top-notch music publishing companies. Inexpensive, beautifully crafted commercial font. Available formats: OpenType, Windows and Mac Postscript. [Font by Cleo Huggins, for .]

  • Free music notation font. “Bach is a software font for Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh. Bach contains a comprehensive set of musical symbols but retains the normal English character set in a standard Roman type-face (see sample and character map). See also a PDF file (kindly supplied by Mr Dave Howard). Bach is a font for writing essays or compiling databases which need to have some musical symbols in them. Note that Bach is not a font for musical score editors, such as Coda's Petrucci or Adobe's Sonata. Unlike such fonts, the musical characters in Bach are sized and spaced out so that they can be used in a sentence.” Included are more numbers for making more exotic time signatures, slurs and triplet symbols, Renaissance music notation symbols, notes without heads (especially for Kodaly method educators), and much more. Incredibly comprehensive music notation font. [Fonts by .]

    Quite comprehensive music manuscript font, music notation font with classic music notation styling. “This is a font with which you can easily make your own customised Music Manuscript, from basic to detailed. There's a comprehensive guide to using it and the everyday stuff is really easy and intuitive (it has to be - we use it!). It's been designed so that you can make simple and intermediate pages very quickly, but there's a lot more if you want to get deeper in. (The fundamentals like Staff Lines, Treble, Bass + Alto Clefs, sharp and flat signs and Time Signatures are very easy, we made sure.)” Available formats: OpenType, Windows and Mac TTF. [Font by Aah Yes Font Foundry.]

  • Music fonts for Gregorian chant and for reproducing melody lines. Commercial fonts, free demo fonts. [Fonts by .]

  • 14th- and early 15th-century music notation font. Free for academic use. Other uses require written permission. “Ciconia is a font for expressing 14th and early-15th century music notation. Ciconia is designed to work in any music notation program or to be embedded within double-spaced word processing text.” [Font by Michael Scott Cuthbert .]

  • Several highly respected, beautifully made music notation fonts with music publishers in mind. “They appear in thousands of published works by publishers such as Oxford 皇族电竞竞猜 Press, Hal Leonard Publishing, Augsburg Fortress Publishers and BMG Ricordi; and they are used in dozens of schools and universities around the world.”
    • Free Fonts: “DVMarticulations is provided as a free font for the users of Finale. It is the only font with articulations that are centered around each character's origin point, and can therefore be precisely centered on each notehead. Also on this page are fully functional demo versions of Metronome and Kidnotes.”
    • Metronome and Met Times: “First created in 1989, Metronome and MetTimes were designed as music fonts that would be as easy to use as text fonts. Metronome got its name for its ability to produce metronome markings and 'swing' indications ('beamed eighths' = 'quarter-eighth under a triplet sign') in MOTU's old Professional Composer, and in Coda's Finale v. 1.0. MetTimes began as a clone of the ubiquitous 'Times' font, with music characters added. Since then, the fonts have received over 20 upgrades and are now the most polished fonts of their kind on the market. They have hundreds of kerning pairs, handcrafted bitmaps for text sizes, and they come with both postscript and Truetype versions on disk. The fonts are available for either Windows or Macintosh and are fully compatible with all word processors, page layout programs, and notation programs.”
    • Kidnotes: “Kidnotes is designed for use with elementary music; it is particularly well-suited for use with beginning piano music. Kidnotes includes a set of noteheads with letters embedded; we include templates for use with Finale so that the correct letter names will automatically appear from within Finale. And now, with the release of Sibelius 3, we can offer a special version of Kidnotes for Sibelius. It is available for either Windows or Macintosh.”

    • FiguredBassMH font: This figured bass font was created to ease entry of figured bass symbols in applications such as Finale or Microsoft Word.
    • StaffClefPitchesEasy: A font enabling you to put pitch material - staff, clefs, pitches and barlines - onto any page using any application. This can be entered in a word processing document (for a thesis or assignment or so forth).
    • Rhythms: A font enabling you to put rhythmic notation - including rhythmic values, time signatures, tuplet markings, barlines - onto any page using any application. This can be entered in a word processing document (for a thesis or assignment or so forth). Not as many characters as the Bach font, but easier to use and can do things that the Bach font can't.
    • Accidentals font: “A font containing quartertones and other microtones in addition to the standard chromatic accidental symbols. Intended for use with Finale. Contains a Finale 2002 document from which a library of microtone symbols can be extracted for use as articulations.”
