Faster, neater, scores for students
Sibelius 6 music notation software features Magnetic Layout which positions almost every aspect of students' scores in just the right placeâdynamics, lyrics, chord symbols, and more. Students can produce smarter scores more quickly for coursework and examinations. Magnetic Layout also helps teachers prepare scores for class and school performances in up to half the usual time.
Easy classroom control
The network version of Sibelius 6 helps teachers manage a lab of Sibelius copies from a single computer, and ensure students are doing what they're meant to be doing. A classroom control panel lets teachers instantly:
â¢Send a starting worksheet or score to every classroom computer
â¢Freeze computers to get students' attention
â¢Send messages to all students (for example, "Only five more minutes.")
â¢Gather all students' work into a single folder at the end of a classâready to run through on the interactive whiteboard.
Reports on student progress
The Versions feature enables teachers to see and report on what changes have been made to a student's score over time. Students can also add their own commentary with each set of changes, and Sibelius 6 collates these together with a record of progress to generate a student's creative diary.
Exchange comments with students
Teacher and students can now add virtual sticky notes to their scoresâto pass on thoughts and suggestions efficiently, and in just the right places on a score.
Keyboard & Fretboard windows
Sibelius 6 has added these two beautiful windows which are ideal for students who prefer using a keyboard or guitar to notation. Students simply click on the keys or frets to input notes and chordsâor play their computer's QWERTY keys just like a piano. However, they're not just for inputting. Select any note/chord, and the keyboard or fretboard shows how it's played. When students play the score back, they can follow the music on the keyboard or fretboard tooâeven if it's written for other instruments.
Link with audio recording software
This version comes with ReWire support that lets you sync Sibelius playback with audio software that you may already have at your schoolâlike Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, and GarageBand. Students can link together audio recording and score playback to add live audio to their pieces.

I reviewed many musical notation software programs such as Progression, Finale, etc. and chose Sibelius 6 because for me it was easier to use and had good guitar/tab notation abilities. I had used Sibelius First (a good program) but needed to upgrade due to needing more features. Since I am mainly a guitar player and have done a lot of charting this upgrade was essential. I like the fact that you can easily convert your work to midi and wave which makes it easy to manipulate using DAW to tweak the sounds. The sampled instruments are great with the exception of the guitars. The acoustic guitar is okay and the electric guitar is marginal. I do wish they would include better guitar samples. However, I add my own guitar work when recording so I�ۡ���m not too disappointed. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product.
