Sibelius for Education with Annual Upgrade Plan

World’s best music notation software just got even better!

This is an EDUCATION line only and you will be required to provide a valid student ID and / or documentation from your education establishment before we will dispatch your order

Sibelius is renowned all over the world for its easy, professional and intuitive way of writing and scoring music as it is used by professional composers, publishers, arrangers all over the world and it is very popular in education too. Here at Normans we are very excited to stock the new Sibelius 8 version and are confident you will enjoy the new features it has to offer. The software has certainly been improved from many different aspects, including better scoring experience, more intuitive operation and much better user support. If you need any advice regarding this version of Sibelius, please do not hesitate to give our sales team a call on 01283 535333 option 1 or email us on sales@normans.co.uk and we will be happy to help!

Free upgrade plan and full support for 12 months

Possibly one of the best new features within Sibelius 8 is its annual upgrade plan which entitles you for any software upgrades released within a year after registering your Sibelius. This makes it a great program for students as you will not need to spend any money on any additional releases, making sure you are up to date with your notation software. Within the first year of purchasing Sibelius 8 you will also receive full support 24/7 via email and one free phone case each month, so that even if you are new to the software, you can feel confident there will be someone to help you whenever needed.

Add notes and comments directly into the score

An excellent function for teaching and collaborating with others – Annotate allows you to create reminders and add notes directly on to the score. This is a great way to suggest edits, add personal comments about music changes and more by simply drawing into the score using your mouse, trackpad, tablet or Microsoft Surface Pro. These annotations will be attached to the bar to make sure you don’t lose them and you can turn them on and off as you like, so that they don’t appear on your print-outs.

Intuitive, responsive operating experience

With the new Sibelius you can easily interact with your scores using a trackpad or Surface Pro 3 tablet to quickly zoom in and out of your score. In fact, if you are a Surface Pro user, you can also add and edit notes with the Surface Pen for a more hands-on experience, allowing you to write and compose music wherever you are. To play music in real time, you can simply use the tablet’s onscreen keyboard and fretboard – perfect for composing beautiful pieces quickly and easily. In addition to this, Sibelius lets you add dynamic parts and navigate your scores much easier compared to other notation softwares, which makes it a clear market leader. The Timeline window makes it easy to oversee, access and edit individual parts of your music no matter how complex or long it is and, if you are adding accidentals, Sibelius makes sure they stick to notes without colliding with other parts for a quicker way of creating stunning scores professionally.

Additional tools for composing and transcribing scores

You can now easily transcribe scores from audio recordings with AudioScore Lite which recognizes and transcribes music from MP3s, MIDI as well as vocal or instrumental recordings. Looking to transcribe a handwritten score or a PDF into Sibelius? This is easily done in seconds with the PhotoScore & NotateMe Lite tools, turning compositions into editable digital scores. In addition to this, Sibelius also offers a large, 36GB library of realistic, expressive instruments, supports VST and AU plug-ins and can be synced with other popular audio softwares such as ProTools through ReWire.
