You probably don't need to know any more than you can find in


It doesn't use namespaces and there are two possible root elements, 
depending on whether the music is arranged hierarchically part-by-part 
or measure-by-measure.

"The MusicXML 2.0 DTD has no namespace, so for compatibility the 
MusicXML 2.0 XSD has no namespace either. Those who need to import the 
MusicXML XSD into another schema are advised to create a new version 
that uses "http://www.musicxml.org/xsd/MusicXML" as the namespace."
