Bio

Besides playing the piano, one of the other interests of Belgian Thomas Bonte has been building community websites for musicians. Being an experienced Drupal developer, Thomas decided to build a home for the MuseScore user and contributor community at musescore.org in 2008. His entrepreneurial instinct made him decide to go all in on MuseScore and change how people create, share and consume sheet music. By the end of 2009 the worldwide adoption of MuseScore started to take off. MuseScore reached the milestone of 100,000 downloads per month and the contributor community had grown to more than 100 people. In order to secure the future development of MuseScore and sustain its growth, Thomas formed a company with MuseScore lead developer Werner Schweer and core contributor Nicolas Froment. They created musescore.com to let MuseScore users easily share their sheet music with others and take their sheet music collection with them on mobile devices. If Thomas is not behind his computer, you may find him evangelizing MuseScore in some part of the world.
