Will Harvey's Music Construction Set

Music Construction Set is a music composition notation program. It was originally developed in 1984 for the Apple II, and quickly ported to other systems of the era. It was designed and developed by Will Harvey and published by Electronic Arts. Harvey designed and programmed the original Apple II version of the game in assembly language when he was 15 and in high school. Though it is entertainment software, strictly speaking it is not a game, though it is often lumped together with them. It is also considered edutainment since users could learn a bit about music notation by using it. Music Construction Set was a prototype for much of today's scorewriting software.
