How do I remove the left hand of the piano in MuseScore and Finale? I want to listen to the separate score parts.
I can only answer the MuseScore portion of the question:
- With your score open, go to
Edit -> Instruments.
- On the right-hand side of the pop-up window, select the staff that you want to remove. (In this case, it most likely says "Bass clef" under the "Piano" heading.
Removein the center column of this pop-up window.
- Return to the score. The staff has been removed and thus will not be a part of your playback.
In MuseScore 3 when a part consists of more than one staves, it is possible to mute individual voices within each staff of the part by pressing buttons 1-4 of the corresponding row in the detail area of the mixer. So in the case of a piano part, pressing all four buttons of the upper (or lower) row will mute the right (or left) hand staff.
