    sheet music maker

    Does anyone here know of a (free or shareware) program that makes sheet music and plays them also. I have only found Play music, but you can't save the file you make without buying. Any help would be appreciated

    there are plenty of sheet music programs out there.

    The most popular are Cakewalk and Finale, however, you must pay for those.


    I know it has some that are shareware and freeware. I used a couple in the past, but it was so long ago I cannot remember what they were like. I mostly use Cakewalk now.

    one that works pretty nicely is called anvil studio, but it's more for making midi music really easily. You *can* put sheet music in there, you just have to manually place stuff in to it (or play it from a keyboard piano)

    I use Finale. Unless you have some way of getting it cheap, don't think about buying it (It's over $400 I think). There are a few things I hate about it, but they fixed a lot of it in their newer version (I got 2003; 2004 is the newest version)
