what you are looking for is called a "musical movement". thats the
technical name for what you are looking for. and from my experience, your
best bet is to just start calling around. craft stores, hobby shops, some
woodworking places, you never know who might have them in stock. if you
just want to make one or two and just want 'nice music' (vs a particular
song), check the thrift stores too for music boxes you can scavange. you
might come up with a nice one that way for very cheap.

There are a variety of sources depending on how many notes you want.
They come in 18, 36, 72 note movements as well as some others (IIRC,
54 notes). The more notes, the more expensive.
The one I got from Rockler is very nice. It's made by Reuge, who seem
to be top dog in quality movements.
If you're interested in Music Box ideas, I have some photos
You will find them in craft stores, but do some searching around if you want
the better quality ones that have better sound, more notes. I've seen
places on the web that have large selections.
