Sibelius is really very adaptable indeed!

Keyboard shortcuts are editable, so over time, you can amend them. Sibelius can works exactly how you want it too!

Currently there a three (3) versions of the software available.

‘Sibelius First’ ‘Sibelius’ and ‘Sibelius Ultimate’.

For all the videos that I do on this site, it’s the Ultimate version of the software I use. You can purchase the software directly from Avid’s website.

For the Ultimate version, they also have a subscription option that you may want to check out as it allows full use of every feature the software has to offer, as well as allowing the installation of plugins.

It’s amazing, I cannot recommend this version of the software enough!
