Even with Mute Instrument, the muted part's notes still appear on the Piano Keyboard.

I think that only two notes need to appear on Piano Keyboard not four. Is it possible prevent that?

Muting the instrument only turns the volume down to zero; it doesn't stop that instrument from being played. That is, it's still played when muted, just silently.

To prevent an instrument's notes from showing up on the keyboard, you must turn off the Play setting for each of that instrument's notes.

  1. Select all notes for that instrument.
  2. In the Inspector's Select section, click Notes.
  3. Uncheck Play.
