You can utilize Microsoft Excel.

Neat trick. Never thought of that.

On the rare occasions I need to write something by hand nowadays, I usually just download blank manuscript paper. (The University of Virginia has a bunch of blank templates available for download HERE.)

That's awesome... but I'm pretty sure that they already have manuscript paper avaliable online for print...

What sort of lame, 20th-century reject still composes by hand? :cool:

HATE.

I was so glad when I got my first computer-notation program. I will never go back to pencil and paper.

Whee! I remember melodic dictation and I still have all my little compositions for my theory classes. I used MS Word to make staff paper for my first scale sheets I made for my students. Hours in front of the TV, writing the 12 scales for 2 octaves by hand for each instrument. Key signatures took the longest.

It was time well spent, but not today. Type in one sheet and save, then transpose, save as, transpose, save as. Heaven. Start saving $$ and get a notation program. You won't be sorry. I love Sibelius, but I'm sure Finale works just fine. Do they have special prices for students?

Has anyone tried the tiny one that comes on the CD for the Essential Elements 2000 books? I never get around to it.

Oh there is. I just never thought of using Excel. It's probably a good way if you are in a position of being internet-deprived (heaven forbid!).

Alas, here's another site that offers templates:

*business hat on* Sibelius does offer academic pricing for the full version of Sibelius for $329 instead of $599. We also have Sibelius Student for $99. Feel free to check out the site, www.sibelius.com. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.
