    It's a really easy-to-learn music composer, and you'll get used really quick to the 16-bit sounds. It has the full General Midi soundfont, and is beginner-friendly. And best of all, it's completely free.

    LilyPond isn't actually a composition tool--it's meant for producing sheet music layouts.
