Free open software for music theory
It is with my deepest regret that I have to announce the closure of the LenMus project.
I always failed in attracting more developers to the project and the result is that LenMus was increasingly lagging behind the fast pace of changes on computers and the increment on project objectives and complexity. As I can not do it all alone, I stopped all development six months ago and, probably, I will not resume it again. Read more.
It was for me a great honor that LenMus project was selected by the Australian Government as one of the three applications for music that was loaded in laptops for children, as part of their Digital Education Revolution project.
Thank you to all the loyal users, and to everyone who contributed in different ways over the years to this project.
Please update LenMus bookmarks and links to point to "http://lenmus.sourceforge.net". Old domain "lenmus.org" will stop working. Thank you.
Welcome to LenMus! It is a free open software project, committed to the principles of
open source software, free education, and open access to information. It has no commercial
purpose. It aims at developing publicly available knowledge, methods and algorithms related
to teaching music, and music representation and management with computers and, at the same time,
to provide free quality software for music students, amateurs, and teachers.
I started LenMus when I was studying music theory, as a help to practice sight
reading and aural
training. Since then I've been working on this. I hope it can be useful to you!. And that you
will join me to help to improve the project!

Practise music theory on-line
MusTeacH and LenMus projects are joining efforts to provide you with great tools for your music studies. LenMus project is focused on providing software for desktop computers, but does not provide exercises and materials on-line. On the contrary, MusTeacH project is focused on providing these materials on-line. Both projects, MusTeacH and LenMus, have similar aims and are complementary.
Visit MusTeacH website for practicing exercises on-line, without having to install LenMus program. You will find there many on-line interactive exercises for practicing music theory and training your ear.
