Music notes are ellipses, but slanted ones. Oval graphics cannot be  
slanted (to my knowledge). In an old and half forgotten stack, I used  
this script to define the points of a slanted "ellipse" graphic:

command drawellipse x,y,alpha,laloc
  repeat with i = 0 to 90
    put round(sin(x*i*pi/180)), round(cos(y*i*pi/180)) into line i of  
  end repeat
  set the points of graphic "Ellipse" to thepoints
  revrotatepoly the name of graphic "ellipse",alpha
set the loc of graphic "Ellipse" to laloc
end drawellipse

x and y are the width and hight of the ellipse (if I remember well ),  
and alpha is the slanting angle of the ellipse. The graphic must be  
created before using the command.
It gives something a bit jagged, but it can certainly be improved.
