It's been a long time since I've used Movie Maker, but I'm pretty sure you can do what you are describing. The only reason Chris brought up the audio track thing is because we both (at least I think he does) record with a video camera and also a regular recorder and then swap out the audio from the camera and replace it with the audio from the recorder. You get a much better sound that way. But if I remember correctly, your audio in your last video wasn't too bad so maybe that's why you don't think you want to change that, right?

When you open WMM and then import your video onto the timeline, then just add an additional track on top for your music score images. I don't remember what exact words the WMM program uses for changing the opacity level. Maybe someone else here knows...?
