Sibelius Worksheet Creator
If you teach music, you'll know how long it can take to produce good curriculum materials. That's why we invented the unique Worksheet Creator, in collaboration with experienced teachers and educators.
Easy classroom control - only in Sibelius
Available only with Sibelius, the network version helps teachers manage a lab of Sibelius copies from a single computer, and ensure that students are doing what they're supposed to be doing.
Sibelius Network License Server
No matter how many Sibelius network licenses your school owns, the Sibelius License Server makes it easy for students to access them from any networked computer in the school.
Get easy access to the world's best-selling music notation tool
In addition to Sibelius being available to own and upgrade as before, you can now subscribe on a low-cost monthly or annual basis, enabling you to access the latest version of the software affordably at any time and pay only when you need it. And you'll have access to all future Sibelius updates and upgrades as soon as they're available through the included Avid upgrade plan, as well as expert help.
Write music with a pen on a Surface Pro
Sibelius has been optimized for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, enabling you to add and edit notes quickly with just a tap of the pen, as well as play music in real-time using the tablet's onscreen keyboard and fretboard. Use the Surface Pen's buttons to select, erase and edit your music. You can even drag the score around and resize objects while inputting notes.
Add notes and comments directly on the score
With the new Annotate feature, you can create reminders for yourself about music changes as you're composing, or communicate edits and feedback to others, streamlining collaboration and review. Draw directly on the score using a mouse, trackpad, USB tablet, or Surface Pro 3 Pen. Circle items and write or type comments or instructions to arrangers, players, or students. Because annotations are grouped intelligently and always attached to the bar you add them to, you needn't worry about losing your notes. Plus, annotations can be switched off so they don't appear when printing.
Interact with scores using multi-touch gestures
If you're working on a laptop with a trackpad or using a Surface Pro 3, you can quickly zoom in and out of your score by simply using a pinch-zoom gesture, making navigation and editing easier. You can even set predefined zoom levels to zoom in and out with a quick double-tap.
Scan and transcribe music with ease
Sibelius comes bundled with additional tools to enhance your music writing and arrangement workflow. PhotoScore & NotateMe Lite can read notes in sheet music and PDFs in seconds, enabling you to turn tangible compositions into editable digital scores. You can even write music on a tablet or laptop and convert your handwriting into professional scores. And with AudioScore Lite, you can create a score by transcribing music from a CD or singing or playing an instrument through a microphone and send it to Sibelius. Need more comprehensive notation scanning and the ability to transcribe audio from MP3s, MIDI, and more? Get (or upgrade to) the Sibelius + Ultimate Bundle, which features PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate and AudioScore Ultimate. (To upgrade an existing PhotoScore/AudioScore Ultimate product, visit this Neuratron page.)
Get up and running faster than ever
We've revamped and simplified the entire Sibelius activation process so you can quickly start using the software and easily move to a different computer. No longer do you have to use a serial number, System ID, or Activation ID to activate, deactivate, and reactivate Sibelius whenever you want to switch computers; now you can activate Sibelius on any computer by simply signing in to your Avid Master Account. Plus, you'll get access to support, downloads, and your Avid Marketplace account once you do.
Work faster and see more detailed beauty on Windows
For Windows users, Sibelius features an updated interface and new support for high-resolution displays, enabling you to see every detail of your score in stunning clarity. Plus, gain faster access to the features you need most with new and improved icons that appear in the ribbon and floating windows.
