Name Type Required? Description
version token No The version attribute was added in Version 1.1 for the score-partwise and score-timewise documents. It provides an easier way to get version information than through the MusicXML public ID. The default value is 1.0 to make it possible for programs that handle later versions to distinguish earlier version files reliably. Programs that write MusicXML 1.1 or later files should set this attribute.


This element is used in the following examples:

<assess> and <player>, <concert-score> and <for-part>, <instrument-change>, <movement-number> and <movement-title>, Tutorial: Après un rêve, Tutorial: Chopin Prelude, Tutorial: Chord Symbols, Tutorial: Hello, World, Tutorial: Percussion, Tutorial: Tablature
