Noteflight ‘One Man Band’ Contest

Do you play multiple instruments? Want to compose and play a duet or trio with yourself? Noteflight is excited to announce the One Man Band Contest where you can showcase your talents for a chance to win Noteflight Premium for 5 years! Plus, votes will be cast using score favorites so your talents will be heard and seen over and over again.

Contest Rules

Double Vision – 2 staves using the same instrument
Duet All Yourself – 2 staves using 2 different instruments
Triplets – 3 staves using the same instrument

You can submit to multiple categories or even more than once in the same category. No need to clarify which it is, Noteflight will be able to determine the category based on the score and instrumentation.
