Are you a musician or a music teacher? Do you have the need to write some sheet music? why not use OpenOffice.org?
Did you know there is a simplified notation for music, called LilyPond. It is a simple system to describe the notes and also a program to typeset the notes as sheet music. Thanks to Dave Philips from LinuxJournal I now know how to write sheet music with OpenOffice.org.
Dave demonstrates the use of Samual Hartman’s open source project OOoLilyPond.
Sam’s project is a set of macros that integrate LilyPond into OpenOffice.org and is tested with OOo 2.0.2 and 2.0.4.
Thanks Dave and Sam!
