Sibelius and Photoscore: The fastest and most powerful way to handle your music!
PhotoScore Professional 4 is truly advanced music scanning for transpositions and arrangements. It can scan in, play back, transpose, and print multiple score pages, as well as save audio files in WAV or AIFF formats. It reads printed music in seconds, grabbing the notes and any slurs, dynamics, lyrics, guitar tab, chord diagrams, or other special music markings. You can then work with it just as if you'd inputted it yourself. The streamlined user interface makes it all a breeze. You can use it on its own or use it to scan music into Sibelius, G7, and other MIDI software including sequencers.
Sibelius Education Version 4 is easy for beginners, yet advanced enough for university students. Sibelius helps teachers prepare lessons and lets students hear their mistakes right away. Sibelius satisfies advanced university requirements from avant-garde and early music notation to Schenkerian analysis. Instrumental teachers will never need to write out parts again--Sibelius makes it quick to create exercises, scan in and transpose pieces, and produce accompaniments and arrangements.
The Worksheet Creator allows you to create over 1,700 worksheets, exercises, projects, songs, instrumental pieces, posters and other resources, suitable for students at all levels.
Sibelius lets you post coursework for students to play, print, and save onto your school website or SibeliusEducation.com. SibeliusEducation.com also provides additional teaching materials and resources from other educators and from Sibelius Software.
Sibelius also comes with free limited-time access to GrooveMusic.com--the online version of the world's leading music encyclopedia.
You can also compose to any video file--great for multimedia projects. Syncs the video and the score so you can see what's happening in each simultaneously, plus has advanced features like timecode and hit points to make sure the music fits with important events in the video.
Sibelius comes with a variety of short videos--from Charlie Chaplin to Mr Bean--to compose to. You can get further videos from SibeliusEducation.com, or download trailers and commercials to write to from many other websites.
Arranging & transposing
The Arrange feature saves you hours in creating arrangements and keyboard reductions. It's also ideal for students who are learning arranging, composition, or even orchestration.
Transposing is another great time-saver for putting pieces into suitable keys and adjusting exercises for different instruments or abilities.
Sibelius plays the right instrumental sounds, reading the markings straight from the score and adding expression, so students can immediately hear a realistic rendition of their compositions. You can also use Sibelius to play aural tests, accompaniments, and even create CDs and MP3 files of your music.
Notes which are too high/low are shown in red; you can adjust instrument ranges to write for players of different abilities. Music can be hidden, so students can fill in an exercise on computer and then reveal the right answer.
Sibelius lets you add color, pictures, and graphic notations to coursework; lots of graphics are included. You can also take music from Sibelius into word processors and graphics packages to create worksheets, posters, etc.
Sibelius includes many educational plug-ins to automate tasks such as writing note names and beats above notes, creating sets of scales and arpeggios, adding brass/string fingering and tonic sol-fa, and identifying motives for musical analysis.
Students can sometimes be distracted by some of Sibelius' fun features instead of getting on with their work. You can switch off all of the advanced features with a couple of clicks, leaving only the functions students need for coursework.
You can also turn individual features on/off, and create your own sets of features for different classes - e.g. if you're teaching transposing, you can turn off the auto transpose function.
