How experienced are you with music?  Playing by ear is a skill that only some musicians are really good at, so that is pretty hit and miss.  There are various programs that allow you to write music (e.g. Finale) but they can be expensive. . .I know there used to be a trial version of Finale but I’m not sure if you can still get it or not.  Arranging music is not easy and is best done by someone familiar with the ranges and capabilities of the instruments playing the music.  Do you have any friends or family members who has attended university for music or is a skilled musician?  They might be able to help you!

Normally a great place for sheet music is JWPepper, but I searched it and didn’t manage to come up with anything.  It’s also not listed as part of the soundtrack, so finding sheet music will probably be difficult. That being said, it’s a fairly simple melody with no accompaniment, so as long as you have a decently competent musician, they should be able to figure it out for you.  You’d definitely have to send them that link ahead of time though if you want them to play it for you.  Finding someone who has a jazz background might help you because they do a lot more of playing by ear/improvising.
