Hi Andy,

If you want something you can write notes on try noteedit, 
musescore or rosegarden. I had a similar dilema having to 
rearrange some music a little while ago. I used noteedit 
which seemed to work best for me. All the programmes seem 
to have funny quirks and idiosyncracies. My advice is to 
have a go on each and see how you get on.

To print sheet music from noteedit, I had to save it and 
print from rosegarden.

All the best,
