Default Using musical symbols in Word 2010

I include rhythmic examples and time signatures in my performance notes for musical pieces, which I create in MS Word 2010. I currently use the Bach font for this, and it works fine, but it can be cumbersome to build time signatures and notes to show rhythmic patterns. I'm wondering--how do you add musical symbols to text, and what fonts do you use?

When I need to do anything like this, I make the music example in mup, convert to .pdf, then crop the .pdf and use the result as an image. Possible advantage would be, ending up with a small library of useful examples.
