Default Drum notation softwares

Anyone here know of any drum notation softwares for the Mac OS X. It's a pain to draw it out and I think it's nice to have especially for teachers!
Thanks!

I've got Sibelius. But I can't really work with it... I don't need to write down that much so I didn't try to learn
But it looks nice, many different lay outs and styles.

It's not wise to parade around and say you've downloaded illegal copies of expensive software.

FYI, Finale Notepad retails at $9.95, and should be quite enough for your needs. The more costly versions are for professional use and they are priced accordingly.

Totally agree with you about the downloading.
