    I want to write music with notes, does Garage Band do that?

    It can - also look into the app MuseScore (open source cross platform Finale/Sibelius type of application)

    I didn't think MuseScore was offering a stable Mac port yet...could be wrong though. :confused:

    If you are really serious it's hard to beat either the full Finale (I use Finale 2009) or Sibelius 5.

    So can you print the score with GB now? I'm on '07 still.

    Hell to garage band. Get a cheap copy of Sibelius.

    I use it, it may be a little pricey, but I got a cheap version of Amazon. I recommend getting versions 4, 5 or 6. Don't go before version 4, because it is unlikely to work on Snow Leopard.

    MuseScore - is finally a very stable and good release - it wouldn't hurt to give it a try before spending the cash for Finale or Sibelius - I personally own a copy of Finale 2007 which still runs great on Snow Leopard

    Yes you can print sheet music in GB. It's limited with editing but it can be done. I would try GB first and to the extent that doesn't suit you then start looking into alternatives.
