sheet music software? : LUSENET : Free Music : One Thread

Does anyone know of any public-domain or inexpensive software that can be used to create sheet music. That is, instead of hand-writing out the words and music on pre-printed staffs, I'd like to be able to format the arrangement on-line for saving and printing.

Re: sheet music software

Well this message was posted ages ago, but i thought i'd reply anyway. you can download a program from this site , called Finale Notepad. it's free & it lets you write your own music -- it has a whole range of functions that you can put into your music, like lyrics & the instrument that's playing. it's suitable for both macs and pc's.. i really like it, it's really good.

hope that helps :o)
