I'm writing a document using \documentclass{tufte-book}

How can I insert in a text special characters specific to music (rhythm cells corresponding to : double eighth note, two eighth notes, black). What is the corresponding package ?

Thank you in advance for the answer.

    ctan.org/topic/music ... Probably LATEX4Musicians is a good point to start with these packages (really I have no idea about). – Fran Mar 9 at 10:23

    There are several possibilities, the easiest being a symbol package like wasysym. See martin-thoma.com/how-to-write-music-with-latex for an overview. – Marijn Mar 9 at 11:46
  • Please, can you write an example to understand better your question using an image? – Sebastiano Jul 7 at 22:00

    @Sebastiano My problem is solved, I will add as soon as possible a MWE to present the solution. Thanks! – Phil8544 Jul 9 at 8:51

the package musicography allows the insertion of rhythms cells as the following example \musSixteenth\ \musCorchea \musCorchea\ \musQuarter\ .


The result is as follows: enter image description here
