These programmes are not tested by Musonix.co.uk for being
any more or less suitable to use with the books, except that
they are respectably open-source & free. Open source sequencers
are freeware with the advantage over other free download programs
that volunteers might add pieces of code and keep them updated.
To digress, there may also be old office computers available
free on Freeycle.org
If any listings are wrong please feedback.

Anvil: not open source;
base is free

to download from the tucows sofware download site.
Linux users have the widest sequencer choice including
Mac midi sequencers
Mac users may also have a Garageband sequencer as part of the
cheap iLife package or occasionally sold separately. Apple likes
to offer free training & indocrination through its dealers,
and in the USA this runs as far as free lessons in Garageband
by way of product demonstrations once a week with six topics
demonstrated six-weekly. Worth checking if interested. At the
last check there was no sign of free UK training sessions.
