Midi, Notation, Sheet Music, Bible Programs
Noteworthy Composer. My notation/recording program of choice. Much simpler to use than Sibelius or Finale. Mouse, keyboard and dictation friendly. NWC files may be played and printed via the browser or, as a downloaded file, by using the Noteworthy Composer Viewer. The Viewer can also play midi files. NWC files may be played and printed via the browser or, as a downloaded file, by using the Noteworthy Composer Viewer. The Viewer highlights notes and words while the nwc file song is playing, and also allows pitch and speed control. It also plays midi files. Quick note: unlike MP3 files, the sound of the music will differ depending upon the sound libraries used by the computer.
Midi.org. Great resource for the budding artist. Articles, resources, information on using midi to create music.
Adobe Acrobat Reader. A nearly universal file format. Acroread is free. Many free or shareware programs also available including the built in PDF Reader in Microsoft Edge and extensions available for Google Chrome and Firefox.
Misc. Music and Other Links
Theory [Courtesy of the U.S. Navy (that's right!)]. Basic Music I, Basic Music II (Types of Music and Terms), Theory (Harmony). All in PDF format. Great Resources (but warning: files are quite large).
