How to convert MIDI to sheet music?
If you play some musical instrument (especially if you are in the process of learning), sheet music is quite important for you. It offers a simple way of reproducing music created by other people in all its complexity. Professionals can easily play complex pieces at sight, beginners will need to get acquainted with the score first.
You may be eager to learn how to play a certain piece, but in most cases you'll need its score to get it right. However, sheet music is almost always expensive, and some pieces are pretty difficult to find. Besides, you may need just one piece, not the whole collection offered by your bookshop.
This is where you can try searching the internet. While sheet music itself is still difficult to find, there is another solution. You can take MIDI files (available on the Internet for free in great numbers) and convert them to sheet music with a program like Notation Musician.
Step 1: Download and install the program.

The file will be converted immediately:
