Having dreams is a good thing, but I would advise to aim for something
less grotesque for starters. If I were you, I would aim to write a GUI
programs that can display one (1) note first. After that you can add
more notes, polyphony, grace notes, tablature, Schenkerian analysis,
drum support, and-what-have you.

Don't both with writing specs. You'll get them wrong anyway if it is
the first time you try to write a music notation program.
