Hi Adrian,

MXL files are compressed versions of MusicXML files, and contain a musical score.

The format is used by the 'MuseScore'  program, but there are other programs that can open them.

Either download the free version of 'MuseScore' or Google 'MXL files' and you should find alternatives that you could use.


Regards

Ian

Hi Ian,

Thankyou for your help,

I have downloaded MuseScore 2 and opened the music file Thankyou

I have had museScore on the computer before but had forgotten about it,

The piece of music I needed opening was titled - Into My Arms but my copy is written for piano, It would have been better for me if there was a lead sheet available for Organ or Keyboard ( ie Tyros ) 

Thankyou,

Adrian

Adrian, maybe you know, but in MuseScore you can save the score as a pdf-file and print the sheetmusic. Also possible to transpose to a key you're more comfortable in.
Just in case!
Have fun.

Hi Dick,

Yes I have noticed that what you say can be done with museScore, I can often manage with other scales, they do require more attention in the practising.
With regards to my comments in my email to Ian I.e. ( The piece of music I needed opening was titled - Into My Arms but my copy is written for piano
,[/b] It would have been better for me if there was a lead sheet available for Organ or Keyboard) ( ie Tyros ) 
Piano playing is a different Technique to playing say Tyros or Organ.
I often regret that when I was having lessons many years ago to play the organ I should have instead had lessons playing piano, I think then I would have found it easier to learn Organ/ tyros than the way I did it.
I could now take piano lessons and the thought has been in my mind for some time, with the knowledge I already have in Playing Tyros/ Organ I might be able to move into it quickly, But my Grand daughter wants me to play that piece of music at her wedding in January next, she said NO PRESSURE.
Being a bit old is not an excuse for not trying but when you have been retired 11 years  the mind is strong but the body sluggish.
Best Regards,
Adrian

Hi Dick,
There doesn't appear to be an attachment on your reply,

I notice Arnie seems to have got it but I cant work out why it is not showing on my computer, perhaps the site decided to remove it ??

A mystery,

If it is the sheet music perhaps you could send it direct via my email address

Best regards,

Adrian

Hi Adian,

The attachment is definitely there in Dick's post!   Note that you must be logged in to the Forum to see it.

It's just underneath the text:  'Adrian I take it the attached file is the same you already have. One never knows.'
