That sounds a lot like the Abjad software project.

And, welcome to the world of LilyPond!

Hi Garreth,

Absolutely - I highly recommend both:


Abjad - they are outstanding resources.

Even though the first Python course link seems rather elementary with its example that was chosen, the potential is massive - it's inspired me to make quite a few pieces using this Python-centric approach. Great for inspiration and seeing the bigger picture when it comes to putting all the pieces of a score together.

Definitely check it out.

And Abjad,'s just mind-boggling awesome.
A real game changer.
Heck, I'm always finding new things it can do and it's so much fun to work with. Very inspiring.
The learning curve can be quite a lot at first, but when it clicks...oh it clicks. Wicked good stuff.

Good luck!
