How to Make Music Note Symbols in Text

Creating a music note symbol in text is a fairly simple process that can be done in a variety of ways. Music note symbols can help add clarity to music articles. These symbols also can be used to indicate a person is singing, as opposed to talking, on a social media site. You will want to know how to create these symbols to show off or add personality to your writing.

Step 1 Find the symbol tool in your word processing program. In Microsoft Word, it is located in the "Insert" menu. Look for the symbol you would like to include in the document and click, "Paste."

Step 2 Locate the symbol you would like to add by finding it online. You can copy and paste symbols using the clipboard on either a Windows or Macintosh computer.

Step 3 Determine if you have Maestro font installed on your computer. If you don't, consider installing it. This font will allow you to select from a list of symbols using the keyboard. Each key on the keyboard will correspond to a different note symbol, so you will have to learn what keys to press to get the desired symbol.
