    I want to write music for small church combos...rhythm section, lotsa
    horns, some strings and such. I want to use a keyboard for input and
    want some software that can then print out individual parts for the
    players. Can someone out there point me in the right direction? I have
    a screaming PC (not a Mac). What software should I opt for? Thanks in
    advance...SSZ

    You might want to have a look at Coda Finale http://www.finalemusic.com/
    or a less expensive program called Mozart, http://www.mozart.co.uk/

    For a top sequencer with pretty good score printing, Cubase.

    For a top score layout program with pretty good midi playback, Finale
    or Sibelius.

  4. Steve,
    I use a small program called noteworthy composer. As someone without a lot
    of musical training, I find it's easy to use, and does the job quite nicely
    when coming to putting in songs for practice.
