Plays part and full rehearsal music.

They supply Rehearsal CDs.

It's a freeware music composition program which presents you with a blank manuscript sheet and lets you put in your own notes and lets you play them back through your computer in any instrument of the orchestra. You just drag and drop them from the menu. So, if you copy your own part from any composition you can play it back. It not only allows you to put in single parts but multiple parts and includes dynamics and the ability to vary the speed.
It needs a member to type in the music, quite good for learning parts.
