The tenth video in the Quicktips series. This one shows you how to change an instrument in your score: you can alter the name of the stave and the playback sound whilst retaining any notes you may have entered.
Hello and welcome to another Quicktips video.
Sometimes you might decide to change an instrument when you’re writing a score. Take this bass guitar part for instance: I’ve now decided that I’d like to have this part played on a cello.
The quickest way to change the instrument in my score is to right-click on the staff and choose Staff Properties.
Click on the Change Instrument button here and then choose the instrument you need from the list. Click OK, and then OK again here.
MuseScore will keep any notes you may have entered into that staff. It will also change the name of the instrument in your score as well as the playback sound.
