Music

Playing keyboards...my favorite hobby.

Lilypond Music Notation

While Sibelius is great for scoring music, Lilypond is free - as long as you don't mind doing a little programming. Here's a sample I worked up of the keyboard solo in From The Beginning by Emerson Lake and Palmer. This is the LilyPond input file. If you uncomment the midi section, lilypond will produce a midi file. Otherwise you should see the normal output:
lilypond from-the-beginning.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.10.33

Here's an arrangement for Peg with some keyboard bass.
