Well not being very musical, I can only offer this.  xcircuit.
Yea I know, it doesn't sound musical but the guy who wrote it
is.  The package is in slink.  Here is the web page to check it out

Here is a clip from the readme

   The files psfiles/signal.lps and psfiles/musiclib.lps are examples
of alternate or additional object libraries.  The library file lgf.lps
is used primarily by the lgf-to-ps conversion routines, but has some
different circuit objects in it.

As I recall he even has an example sheet of music in the examples


Real computer scientists despise the idea of actual hardware.  Hardware
has limitations, software doesn't.  It's a real shame that Turing
machines are so poor at I/O.
