I've written a free virtual piano, guitar/banjo/mandolin etc, hammered
dulcimer simulator and note mapper software that lets you write and
play back songs thru midi and see the notes played (animated) on a
musical staff and scale, piano keyboard, guitar/banjo/mandolin, and
hammered dulcimer images. You can also define additional fretted or
fretless musical instrument layouts, for example, violin, mountain
dulcimer, etc. You can change the midi sounds to any of 128 different
instruments, and also record the output to .mid files.

Recently, the program was improved to support up to 16 channels, each
channel assigned to a different instrument, if desired.

The song file syntax is simpler and easier to learn than ABC, MusicXML,
or Lilypond, and can be used to enter most, if not all, western music
exactly as it appears in the original score.

Efforts are underway to convert the many available song files to
Lilypond syntax so they can be displayed and printed as sheet music.

You can find out more and download it here:

That's a free web host and they limit the bandwidth available to me, so
if you have trouble downloading the program, here's an alternate link
to the program and docs download only:
