Finale Notepad

Finale NotePad is the free, entry-level program that allows you to perform basic notational tasks. You can get it here (you will need to create an account and password).

Because this program is free, and also runs on OS X and Windows, if you use it with your students you can be sure that most of them will be able to get a copy at home. The downside is that it is severely¬†limited (you can’t change time signatures, add lyrics, output as MIDI, etc). Free software that has most of the functionality disabled is often nicknamed “crippleware”, and NotePad fits the description for most users (the point is to get you hooked/interested/excited enough to purchase one of the more expensive versions).
