  • Compose
  • Orchestrate
  • Engrave & Copy
  • Share
  • Educate
  • Publish

Write music with ease

Sibelius makes music composition easy, giving you the flexibility to work anywhere using your computer or iPad. Whether you prefer to enter notes from the onscreen notation Keypad, a MIDI keyboard, your computer keyboard, or using an Apple Pencil, Sibelius takes care of all note layout, orientation, and rest details for you.

Build up compositions

Create music for everything from piano to orchestra, with multiple instrument parts. And not just with notes and rests—you can add chord symbols, guitar tab, guitar chord diagrams, expression text, articulations, lyrics, titles, graphics, and more to give your music the detail, depth, and dynamism it deserves. You can even loop playback to improvise ideas.

Hear your music in stunning detail

Sibelius includes a high-quality sample library filled with a variety of musical instrumentation, so you can hear what your music will sound like when performed by real musicians. You can also plug in third-party sound libraries, such as NotePerformer, giving you more flexibility with the instrumentation you hear.

Arrange parts fast

The Arrange feature makes it easy to orchestrate additional instrument parts from existing ones. Simply select an orchestration style and Sibelius automatically creates new parts based on your sources. You can also “explode” chords across different parts, speeding up multipart instrumentation. Or consolidate multiple parts into one with a click.

Get Intelligent Import

With a single click, you can import a MIDI, MusicXML, or Sibelius file into a new or existing score. All notation, instrumentation, techniques, and articulations are automatically assigned, preserving the composer’s intent and saving you hours—if not days—of clean-up time. You can even combine several scores together, with control over what’s imported.

Perfect and review scores

Sibelius takes the manual effort out of adapting instrumentation, transposing parts, and adding slurs, so you can work faster. And when your score is ready, Review mode lets you lock things down, enabling collaborators to freely view your score and add comments and annotations without fear of accidentally changing anything.

Create parts dynamically

Sibelius can create individual instrument parts when you create your score and will automatically update them accordingly whenever you make changes to the score. For copyists, this eliminates the need to extract parts or make destructive changes when prepping sheet music for different parts. Plus, parts can be changed without affecting the full score.

Engrave intelligently

Create beautiful professional scores quickly with advanced notation tools and multi-edit capabilities. Add slurs, hairpins, ties, or other staff lines across multiple instruments, and make edits to barlines, expression and technique text, and lyrics all in one action. Sibelius intelligently spaces notes and elements, keeping everything in perfect alignment.

Fly through complex tasks

Thanks to the Sibelius user community, you can supercharge your software with more capabilities through free plugins. With over 140 included (and hundreds more available), these plugins can help you with complex engraving, notating, layout, processing, text, and other tasks. Check out the Install Plugins dialog in Sibelius to find what you need.

Share scores in the cloud

With Sibelius | Cloud Sharing, you can present your scores online, enabling anyone, anywhere, to view and play your compositions using any device. Invite others to review your work privately on your personal cloud space (1 GB included), or post scores to your website and social media for the world to hear. All you need is Sibelius and an Internet connection.

Collaborate easily

Because any score you share in the cloud can be viewed and played in any web browser—without requiring Sibelius—it’s the ultimate tool to send scores out for review, performance prep, and proofreading. Viewers can flip pages, jump to parts, and hear compositions with full high-quality instrumentation.

Get more ways to share

Save scores to iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, or other iOS-supported cloud service, and you and other collaborators can access the files from anywhere using a laptop or iPad. And because you’re all always in Sibelius whether on desktop or mobile, you can seamlessly move between both worlds without ever having to import or export files.

Teach music composition

Sibelius | Ultimate is ideal for teaching music notation, composition, and theory to students of all ages. It offers ready-made teaching materials, Classroom Control to track student progress, plus optional network licensing, making it easy to assign licenses to students on any computer.

Save time on lesson prep

If you teach music, you know how long it can take to produce quality curriculum materials. That’s why we developed the unique Worksheet Creator in collaboration with music educators, providing over 1,700 worksheets, projects, exercises, songs, and other teaching resources.

Prep scores for publishing

With a full suite of desktop publishing tools and the Inspector, you can control and finesse every element in your score to perfection. Fine-tune dynamics and other text with tracking, leading, scaling, and alignment tools. Use hierarchical styles to change fonts. Add graphics. Even create your own house styles and manuscript papers to make your scores unique.

Publish your music

You can share your compositions with the world in a variety of ways. Publish scores directly to Score Exchange to sell your sheet music to the masses. Export scores as PDFs for distribution through a variety of music publishers. You can even export an audio version of your work for distribution to Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming services.
