Powerbook G4 software upgrade

Sorry to ask a daft question, but is it possible to upgrade Mac x 10.4.11 to 10.5 or 10.6 or higher?

I have a powerbook G4 12"

You can upgrade it to 10.5.8, but no higher, as PowerPC support was dropped in snow leopard
a computer with some GHz and a few GB, some stuff to play music.

Leopard, but that's it.

The farthest you can go is Leopard. Snow Leopard, and the upcoming Lion won't support it.
