    Is this of any use?

    It took about 30 seconds to find with Google...

    Do you mean one that looks like musical notes but is still letters, or one that means you can type music, like a wingdings type font with musical notes in it?

    one that you can still read, if i cant find out its not that big of a deal. basically for my design class we have to design a pamphlet for the winter concert, that is to raise money for katrina relief.

    Take a peek at these freeware fonts, you may find something you like in there, especially in the fontbat section.

    [Edit: I noticed that they say "Windows only" but they do work with OS X.]

    dafont.com has some great fonts, and some very unique ones.

    how many music notes do you really need? the special char palette for OS X already has the basic notes and some of the basic notation. I believe.

    I gathered that the request was for letter forms styled like notes, not literally music notation symbols.

    What about using a font like this one, and putting a stave in the background? It would be a subtler effect, and would save you having to find a specific font.
