You have not considered the larger question of whether Klingons would call
what is printed on the paper "music". If it is not, then our idea of written
music would have to be referred to as something like <QoQ muchmeH mIw>, or
maybe even <QoQ muchmeH mIw cha'bogh nav'e'>.

I think <QoQ nav> is probably fine, though.
