My wife is a choir director and is looking to do some music notation. While I have done a little poking around, Muse Score and NoteEdit didn't seem to be very intuitive to use. Have some more things to try, but I thought I would test this forum.
There are several how-tos on doing acutal audio composition in Ubuntu (Ubuntu Studio, etc), but this is not quite what I'm looking for.
What I would like:
- Music Notation software which supports
- 4-6 staff composition (SATB + right-left hand piano)
- Simple note entry
- Future input through MIDI keyboard
- Finished printing capability
While I'm starting to think that we could try to do audio entry into something like Rosegarten for piano and all of the voices and then see if that would be able to give me actual sheet music (she makes learning CDs for her choirs as well, so it wouldn't be wasted work), that is not where I'm hoping to go today.
