I used the notation editor to make sheet music for a number of songs and hymns for our (now-defunct) church's band. I don't know how useful it was to people, but it was generally much more readable than the sheets (lines of lyric text, handwritten guitar chords, hand drawn stairsteppy diagrams he used instead of staves!) the worship leader supplied!

Now I use it just for my own music. I'm not involved in our current church's band.

Thank you Richard and all of the other devs that have made Rosegarden.

I've been lurking on this list for many (mid-90s?) years. Learning the history 
with this video was great fun.

Although I play a little guitar, I'm not much of a musician and have never used 
Rosegarden for MIDI to connect with a real synth. My primary use of Rosegarden 
is the notation editor. While in a choir for many years, I used the notation 
editor to enter my tenor parts from sheet music as an aid to learning the parts 
by listening and singing along. Often, I would do all four parts and generate 
CD's with the audio for the other members of the choir.

Not only did the notation editor help me in the choir, using it actually taught 
me many of the rules for music notation just by using it.

Rosegarden is a really great application and fits well with my FOSS and Linux 

Thank you all again,

Thanks Ted!

The talk didn't go as smoothly as I'd hoped (big auditorium and I got vertigo 
at one stage) but hopefully, some of it makes sense. I really enjoyed putting 
it together and one guy did say he might get involved afterwards, so who knows? 
;) I'm still quite keen to add some more tests and work on improving CI quality 
generally but it all depends on many things - not least finding some spare time.
