Setting up Sibelius Part 2 Notes

Ok..so let’s carry on from where we left off last time..and have a little recap!

You know how to set up a brand new score, enter Key Signatures and other information such as the Title, add Time Signatures and your name as the composer..but there’s something missing from the score!

I wonder what that could be??..

Setting up Sibelius Part 2

In this video, I’ll show you how to add notes to your score in 3 different ways!

Each of them has pros and cons, and it’s up to you to find the one that suits you best.

The video shows the most common ways to input music if you don’t have a MIDI keyboard connected to your computer.

Even if you have (as I do) it’s amazing how many times you’ll end up popping in notes to your score in one of these ways..as when you get used to them they all can be really quick indeed.

In fact, one way, in particular, is LIGHTNING Fast!

Once you know a few ways of inputting notes, and you can find your way around the Sibelius interface, its amazing how quickly these techniques help you write music!

You’ll get to grips with the virtual keyboard that you can open in Sibelius.

It’s quick and easy to add notes into your score using it


I’ll also show you how to add notes into your staves by using the Keypad.

You’ll use the mouse for this one, you may even prefer it!

Finally, I’ll show you a keyboard shortcut to input notes really quickly.

This is how I mostly enter notes as it’s LIGHTNING fast!


Ok, there you go, that was Setting up Sibelius Part 2!
