What is MusicXML?

"MusicXML is a universal translator for common Western musical notation from the 17th century onwards. It is designed as an interchange format for notation, analysis, retrieval, and performance applications."  Recordare.com

The format is open for use by anyone under a royalty-free license

SharpEye Music Reader is a music scanning program created by Graham Jones at visiv. You can use SharpEye to convert printed sheet music into a music notation  or MIDI file, which can then be imported into a music notation program or MIDI sequencer. This process is called music OCR by analogy with the more common text OCR, or OMR for "optical music recognition."
